We don't need to tell you that practicing law is rarely a nine-to-five gig. Whether you are in-house or a private practice lawyer, the job easily can dominate your life, if you let it.
To help find your much-needed, and deserved, work-life balance, be part of martindale.com Connected's "Life Outside the Law" event. This two-week event, which starts on December 13, will focus on the important things in your lives that are outside of practicing law that have influenced you both professionally and personally. By participating in this event, you will have an opportunity to connect with other legal professionals through the sharing of common interests, while building relationships in our community in a deeper and more meaningful way.
You will hear stories from lawyers like Michael Chang, Senior In-House Counsel at Warner Brothers, who grew up as an immigrant in America and learned to speak English from Bugs Bunny cartoons, a cartoon that is produced by the same studio he now works for. This is just one of thousands of stories we can tell. Our event will feature guest blogs, a special edition podcast and moderated discussions on topics such as work-life balance, achieving professional goals, personal development and more. The highlight of the event will be our live Twitter event on Thursday, December 16, at 3 pm ET.
