Addressing Challenges Lawyers Face Series

As we gear up for Fall, LAPBC invites you to join us for a new informative volunteer training series entitled Addressing Challenges Lawyers Face. These workshops are designed to be both educational and interactive and serve as opportunities to learn, process and gain self-awareness. We focus on developing empathy for ourselves and awareness of challenges that other lawyers may face.

We have a number of resources which will be updated through the duration of this series.
