At this point, I am sure that many of you are starting to feel the effects of cabin fever. There are several ways you can ease the tension of being constrained at home, which include maintaining a routine, staying physically and mentally active, and connecting with others. Seriously, take some time away from the news and your work to walk outside in the fresh air and in the sun. You will be surprised how effective this can be to combat the dreariness of being indoors.
While you can accomplish the first two tasks on your own, connecting with others, by definition, cannot. That is where our organization can be of assistance. Lawyers Club continues to work on ensuring that we provide our members with the opportunities to connect with others. Our committees continue to provide excellent programming via an online platform. For example this week, the Diverse Women’s Committee featured Nadia Bermudez, a shareholder at Klinedinst PC, who discussed tips on how to have a successful legal career; the Trial Advocacy Committee featured Jonah Toleno, a partner at Shustak Reynolds & Partners, P.C., who discussed the similarities and differences between trials and arbitration; and the LGBTQ Committee in conjunction with Tom Homann LGBT Law Association presented an MCLE on the Supreme Court Equality Updates including The Masterpiece Cakeshop case. So please, continue to participate in our valuable and interesting programming. I guarantee that not only will it be beneficial to your professional growth but it will brighten up your day and help you continue to work hard at home.
