This is a recording of an AILA University Video Roundtable free for members, hosted on Wednesday, July 14 at 1:00 pm Eastern.

This roundtable is brought to you by AILA's Lawyer Well-Being Committee.

Immigration lawyers are frequently driven, diligent, and intense. Many work long hours and weekends, putting client interest above their own. This sounds positive, but it can often cross over into workaholism impacting interpersonal relationships and the lawyer’s mental health. Join us for a roundtable discussion on how to shut off the lawyer brain when it’s time to stop working.

AILA University Video Roundtables are free learning opportunities for AILA members provided via a weekly schedule of live video programming for members to come together from across the country and world to discuss hot topics and network with colleagues in the field. Video Roundtables are part of AILA University programming and each session is hosted by faculty selected for their expertise.

Discussion Topics

  • How to Identify Workaholism
  • Tools for Turning Off a Racing, Work-Focused Internal Dialogue
  • How to Begin to Repair Relationships
