     Thank you to Foley & Lardner LLP,

    The practice of law is demanding.  SVIPLA is pleased to have Michelle Galloway, Partner, Cooley, returns to discuss current research regarding the impact of chronic stress and how it can negatively impact how you practice law. How can you identify practice-related stressors and what can you do about them? Specific strategies will be discussed for increasing your capacity to handle stress, including competence, habits, listening, and focus. By addressing chronic stress in practice, you can be healthier mentally and physically, avoid impairment, and be a better lawyer.
