AboutAbout This Course

This seminar focuses on the historical evolution of ways in which the courts and the legal profession have handled problems with lawyers involving alcoholism and addiction to drugs. In many ways, it's also closely related to ways the courts and the legal profession handle problems such as disabilities whether they be mental, emotional, psychiatric, geriatric, or related to alcoholism or addiction. It also focuses on public-policy, judicial-policy and legal-ethics issues pertaining to the efforts to alleviate such problems in ways that are consistent with the duties of the courts and the legal profession to protect the public from lawyers whose professional responsibilities may be impaired or compromised by such mental conditions.
