The legal profession has a well deserved reputation for consuming (and sometimes destroying) the lives of its practitioners. So for Christian lawyers, especially, the ability to maintain a healthy balance between law practice and life's other worthy endeavors is an essential survival skill. In the coming weeks I'll be sharing some of my own hard-won insight on successful life and career balance with future lawyers at University of Maryland School of Law and Widener Law.
My planned presentation for the law students, entitled "Making Friends with the Jealous Mistress: Successfully Balancing Law Practice and Life," is based partially on a similarly titled essay I wrote for The Pennsylvania Lawyer magazine's July/August 2008 issue. Anyone interested in receiving a copy of that essay may leave a comment requesting same, along with appropriate contact info, and I'll be happy to email the pdf file to you.
