Members of the Massachusetts bar should aim for the highest level of professionalism in relationships with clients, colleagues, parties, administrative entities and the courts. The first years of practicing law are a critical time in the development of professional habits and character.

To help foster this transition, the fellows of the 2023 MBA’s Leadership Academy invite you to participate in the Transition into Practice Program Series (“TIPs”). The fellows designed the series to provide transitional support to newly admitted attorneys and soon-to-be-graduating law students so that they have the practical skills and judgment necessary to practice at the highest level.

In this session, join our expert panel as they discuss legal burnout and how to overcome and more importantly prevent it. When we experience burnout, we often find ourselves feeling helpless or powerless, like there is no way out of it. However, there are strategies that can help you reduce its negative impacts so you can thrive professionally. Specific topics include:

  • Recognizing the signs of burnout
  • Engaging your values in the workplace
  • Building community and connection at work
  • Setting boundaries to conserve your energy
  • Managing feelings of imposter syndrome
  • Exercising self-compassion and emotional awareness

All programs are free and will help ensure a smooth entry into the practice of law.
