Before the time of turmoil and readjustment that was 2020, most of us spent a designated number of hours every day working jobs and then ideally left them behind once those working hours were over.

Now, with decreased commutes and increased virtual interaction due to the pandemic, work-life integration is one of the leading lifestyles for tackling day-to-day priorities.

“Work-life integration is, at its best, a way to help individuals both improve their well-being and enhance their performance at work,” says Stephanie Harrison, founder and CEO of The New Happy, and an expert in well-being and lasting behavioral change.

“I personally define work-life integration as a constantly-evolving, self-determined way of living that allows you to engage as your best self in the various parts of your life — like your home, your community, and of course, your work.”

While the idea of blending your work and personal life may appear unwieldy, it doesn’t have to be as overwhelming as it seems. Courtney Sommer brings you tips and best practices to establish a new system where your work and personal life are not at odds, but flow together to create steadiness in your day.

Learn more about how you can begin the process of integrating work and your personal life in the video above.

CAMP Upcoming Events

Can lawyers do better than scientists at persuading the public of the importance of climate change? We are not suggesting that lawyers should predict the impact of rising greenhouse gas emissions. That task will still fall to the scientists. But if a new approach to framing the issue is genuinely needed, how might lawyers make an effective contribution? Climate change is then a justice issue that demands lawyers’ immediate attention, not just a hypothetical problem for a distant future. International rules on emissions cuts, climate change finance and the attribution of responsibility are being decided today, which will have a huge impact on the lives of billions of people for decades to come. Join our panel of experts to discuss the role of lawyers in addressing this difficult problem for society and advocating for and creating policy to further climate change action.

Panelists:

Spencer Rubin, Bryan Cave

Michael Hiatt, EarthJustice

Kate Merlin, Wild Earth Guardians

Many of the evidence based clinical interventions deployed by psychologists and counselors are grounded in cognitive theory. Learn how your thought processes affect your physiological and emotional experience and why these interventions are so powerful. Participants will leave the session with practical strategies for counteracting their own problematic thinking patterns.

With social media comes a host of new considerations for practicing law, including impacts on discovery, evidence, ethics and trial procedure. The impact of online social media on the legal profession is an issue that requires attention. Members of the legal community these days use social networking websites and applications such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and WhatsApp, respectively, for a variety of purposes ranging from purely social to advertisement of business and expansion of networks. Join our panel of experts as we explore the ethics of social media for lawyers including topics privacy, confidentiality, ethics and the need for rapidly evolving courtroom rules that remain consistent with constitutional rights.

Panelists:
April McMurrey, Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel

Nicole Black, Cohen Black Law

Kevin Cheney, Cheney Galluzzi and Howard LLC

Putting the “Pros” back in Pro Bono

Recognizing the need to address the changing legal profession and striving to create innovative and meaningful opportunities to improve access to justice, the Succession to Service Program seeks to catalyze Colorado’s lawyers to provide service to nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public service entities.
 
The goal of the Succession to Service Program is to establish a structured, statewide program for Colorado’s experienced lawyers and judges to partner with nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public interest entities to influence the continuing need for equal access to justice.
 
Lawyers are matched with nonprofit organizations, legal services programs, and the courts to provide essential legal assistance to underserved populations. Using their specialized skills and experience to do engaging pro bono work, participating lawyers remain active members of the legal community and help Colorado’s courts and service providers expand and enhance the pro bono legal services they offer.
