In law school we are taught to “think like a lawyer” and are indoctrinated into a particular culture—one that is characterized by an emphasis on rationality, stoicism, and remaining calm under pressure. In such a culture, not only don’t feelings matter, they can mess things up. And yet . . . law is messy. Because being a lawyer means having relationships—with clients, with colleagues, with opposing counsel—and relationships are messy because they mean we’re going to have feelings.

In this recorded seminar, part of the Legal LunchboxTM Series, lawyer and psychotherapist Duncan Hollomon shares psychological insights that can be brought to bear on the relational challenges that being a lawyer presents, not only in terms of “self-care,” but in addressing the needs of our clients. Consider with him whether we can reimagine the practice of law as one of bringing about relational reconciliation and healing while rewarding its practitioners with supportive and compassionate relationships.

Presenter: Duncan Holloman, JD, PhD – Seattle, WA
