Section Meeting

Group Discussion Topic: Making and Breaking Habits 

Join the New Lawyers Section for our first monthly meeting of the 2017-18 bar year. This is a perfect, low-hurdle way to learn more about the Section, build connections, and get involved. We will talk about upcoming events and leadership opportunities, followed by a group discussion on Gretchen Rubin's "Four Habit-Forming Tendencies." Are you someone who only keeps promises when someone else is holding you accountable? Or do you find it difficult to change your behavior unless you have an ironclad reason for doing so? We will learn about what drives us to make and change our habits, and talk about how this impacts our lives and our practice as lawyers.

Want to find out more about what motivates your habits and behavior? Take this quiz before our meeting to find out. 

Lunch is provided. Please register so we know how much food to order.
