Live CLE Seminars | Jim Blackburn Seminars

Since the pandemic hit in the early part of 2020, the world of Continuing Legal Education, like everything else in the world, turned upside down. In person live programs have been difficult, if not impossible, to do, and so I have not held any during this time. At least for now, welcome to the world of Zoom Webinars.

While the venue has changed from a meeting room to individual offices and homes via of computers, smart phones and ipads, the experience of meeting new people and having thought provoking discussions on a wide range of topics has actually expanded as now it is completely normal to have persons present from different cities and towns across the state in a single program.

And so we have learned to successfully adapt to this new world of making sure we are safe.

The new programs now available are aptly titled Adversity Strikes...which it will and Resilience and Well Being in 2021. Learn how others are coping, surviving and often find themselves busier than ever. Hear suggestions as to how you can as well. And get your CLE hours from the comfort and safety of your choice.

Live and in person programs will eventually return, but until then I hope to see you on the Internet.

When Adversity Strikes...And It Will

One of the great lessons in life generally and the practice of law specifically is that adverstiy and tough times can hit us all. For those in the legal profession, facing adversity is often what brings new clients to attorneys.

What is most important is how a person responds to getting knocked down, whether the person can simply survive and get back up. Attorneys and those in the legal profession play an important role in this process and often are responsible for helping someone recover or not so much. Recovery and starting over are not automatic. It can often depend on the attorney and the advice and support he or she gives to the client...This is your job. This is what you signed up for. Unless of course you are the one that has been knocked down and need to survive and get back up. Regardless, the same rules apply.

All of that, and more, is what this program is about.

Duration/Credit(s): Ethics and Professionalism - 2 Hours, Mental - 1 Hour
Schedule: 8:30 AM - 11:45 AM



Resilience and Well Being In 2021

2021 promises to be a changing year of new ways of attorneys and all those in the legal profession dealing with clients and themselves. Hopefully, isolation and working remotely from others will recede somewhat during the year, but it is not likely that we will return to the old ways of working...at least for some time. The opportunities of using technology will continue and perhaps grow. Inter-personal connections with clients, other attorneys, and even courts will present new challenges.

The need to be resilient in all things that matter and the importance of simple well being for ourselves has never been more urgent. We need to keep the changes that worked well in surviving 2020 and be open to even more challenges in 2021.

Hopefully this program can help provide a roadmap for the future. It is an ambitious idea, but that is where we are.

Duration/Credit(s): Ethics and Professionalism - 3 Hours
Schedule: 12:30 PM - 3:45 PM
