Sleep impairment impacts competence, focus, diligence, decision-making, effective client communication, and making progress on cases. Sleep deprivation predicts lawyer misconduct by increasing anxiety, interrupting working memory, and impairing effective executive thinking. Learn the latest neuroscience behind sleep, and its impact on mental health, substance use, ethical behavior, and performance. Plus, learn the latest neuroscience behind trust and how to generate the moral molecule—oxytocin—to enhance ethical behavior, performance, joy, and better self-care practices.

Managing Ethics, Negativity and Stress in the Legal Profession
Our duties as lawyers and zealous advocates can put us in the line of fire of difficult parties and opposing counsel, while requiring us to maintain the integrity of the profession and respect the rights of others. Lawyers frequently deal with contentious litigation, looming deadlines and a mountain of cases. This negativity and stress may impact how we conduct ourselves, both personally and professionally. The current uncertainty and tensions associated with the pandemic, social and political unrest, and economic disruption multiply the impact on our health. Learn how stress, negativity and ethical duties interact and how we, as attorneys, can better manage our practice and lives for more ethical behavior.
