Happy Lawyer, Happy Life

Practice Management and Business Skills

CPD Points 1


Many lawyers are unhappy and leaving the law in large numbers. The purpose of this course is to help lawyers identify their drivers for happiness so they can choose a happy life in the law.

Lawyers are unhappy, disillusioned and leaving the profession in large numbers. Even lawyers who are outwardly the epitome of success often suffer from deep unhappiness rooted in the negative impact that the profession of law has on their lives. We need to find a way to keep great people in the law, and to talk about what it takes to be happy in the law, if we are going to reverse this negative trend.

The purpose of this course is to help you identify your drivers for happiness so that you can make the best of your career in the law and, perhaps more importantly, to find happiness in your life. The course focuses on equipping you with practical tools to improve your happiness in five broad areas – health, attitude, passion, purpose and sense of self. Based on the widely renowned book by Clarissa Rayward (The Happy Family Lawyer), this course is a must for any lawyer looking to be happier in their careers and lives.
