Conflict resolution is critical and part of our daily work. We will share expert recommendations for framing, facilitating, and following up in high-conflict interactions. We will help you respond more effectively when conflict arises, while also modeling productive conflict resolution as a critical tool for future lawyers. Participants will be invited to practice these skills as they might be applied to both real and hypothetical scenarios. You will leave with strategies, de-escalation tools, and mindfulness practices that support these important engagements.

3:45pm4:45pmEthics and Executive Functioning: Help Your Students Avoid Ethics Concerns Through Skill Building
TNH 2.139 (Wilson Classroom)

Students are leaving law school with an understanding of the law but lacking executive functioning skills such as time management, project management, emotional regulation, and focus. By teaching executive functioning skills through an ethics-based lens, we can explain to students why the development of these skills is important in law school, practice, and life. This train-the-trainer style session will walk you through how to build an engaging and ethics-based presentation that you can take back to your institution.
