Lawyers and paralegals face the possibility of numerous unexpected interruptions in their law and legal services practices. Contingency planning in the event of disability, death or other unexpected periods of absence from practice should be considered as a means of providing peace of mind for loved ones, clients and employees. Serious prejudice can result to your clients as well as financial and emotional stress for your family unless you properly plan for contingencies.

During this program, experts will discuss key steps for contingency planning and review several practical resources that will assist you in preparing for life events that may impact your practice. All the resources can be found in the Law Society's new Contingency Planning Guides.

The Contingency Planning Guide for Lawyers is available at:
