The Mental, Emotional, and Physical Aspects of Competency

• Competence is more than substantive legal competence to handle the subject matter, it extends to the well-being of the practicing attorney
• In what ways do lawyers risk action from the State Bar for failing to maintain mental, emotional, or physical competence?
• What discipline can the State Bar Court issue for an attorney who fails to maintain mental, emotional, or physical competence?
• What are some early warning signs of a mental, emotional, or physical competence issue that we can spot for our brothers and sisters?
• What programs exist to assist attorneys with maintaining mental, emotional, and physical competence?

Section Chair: Laurie Mims, Keker, Van Nest & Peters
