As lawyers, we often focus so much on the procedural and evidentiary requirements of litigation that we forget about the clients’ human needs. Based in part on Nance’s experience as a litigant, this course discusses the intersection of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and the Rules of Professional Conduct.
UPDATE: The Lawline.com course is no longer available, but a similar course was recorded for ProLawCLE on 01/22/19. The course can also be adapted for other industries. With a bit of planning, we can often gain approval for continuing education credit in the funeral and other professions.
