faculty, and author of the brand new critically acclaimed book “Three Degrees of Law” – explores the various considerations attorneys face in the practice of law.
This program provides attorneys with the tools needed to find success and happiness in the law and ultimately become a better practitioner.

It will discuss the important rules of professional conduct associated with those concepts, and discuss daily ways to practice better.
Harlan will discuss the ways that enthusiasm and devotion to one area can help attorneys continue to practice ethically, resulting in not only a more professional approach, but a more satisfying one.
