Is Your Law Practice Infringing on Your Life? (Or Vice Versa?) Lessons for IP Attorneys from the film, Flash of Genius

·        Chris Osborn, Reeltime

 

This engaging, highly interactive CLE workshop provides a fresh and practical perspective on the fundamental question,

“Why do ‘good’ lawyers ‘go bad’?” Clips from the IP-law themed 2008 film Flash of Genius will serve as the catalyst for a practical

and informative consideration of the intersection of ethical decision-making/professionalism and the manifold sources of stress

encountered by IP lawyers in managing the day-to-day practice of law. Importantly, the workshop will also focus on practical

steps and strategies to reduce stress and its impact. Participants will leave with tangible tools to apply in and outside the office.
