Trauma-Informed Lawyering: The Duty to Do Better in the Era of Truth & Reconciliation

Join the Society’s Truth and Reconciliation Working Group for a virtual education session, Trauma-Informed Lawyering: The Duty to Do Better in the Era of Truth & Reconciliation, with lawyer and host of the The Trauma-Informed Lawyer podcast, Myrna McCallum.

When: Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 12:00 PM-2:00 PM
Where: online via Zoom

Trauma-informed lawyering is a do-no-further-harm, relational approach to the practice of law that benefits you, your clients, your colleagues and the legal profession generally.

Did you attend the previous trauma-informed lawyering session with Myrna? All members, including those who attended the previous session, are encouraged to attend this free education session. It will not only reflect on the content from the last session, but it will also include additional information and it will dive deeper into trauma-informed lawyering.

Please let us know if you have any accessibility accommodation requests to facilitate your participation by contacting Kerry Foss at kfoss@nsbs.org.
