The Law Practice Management & Legal Administrators Section invites the Young Lawyers and Paralegal/Legal Assistant Sections to this event.

Have you walked away from a conversation with a colleague shaking your head?

Have you noticed that your co-workers stop conversing when you approach them?

Do you ever wonder why you are so misunderstood?

We may have the answers.

The Law Practice Management & Legal Administrators Section, in cooperation with Special Counsel, would like to invite you to a workshop to discuss working relationships within the legal workplace. The workshop will present a series of re-enacted office interactions between different generations of attorneys and staff. The issues arising from the interactions will then be discussed.

The workshop will be moderated by Laurie Brewis and Diane Jouppi. Mrs. Brewis is an attorney focusing on labor law. Mrs. Jouppi holds an accounting degree and has over twenty years’ experience as an office administrator for mid and large-sized law firms.

Food and beverages will be provided. The cost for attendance is $10 for administrators and assistants and $15 for attorneys, payable upon entrance.
