Texas attorneys can earn continuing legal education ethics credit by watching the inspirational video Courage, Hope, Help—TLAP Is There through TexasBarCLE starting now through the end of the year.
TexasBarCLE is featuring the video as part of its free online CLE offering titled “Not Alone—Help and Hope for the Impaired Lawyer,” which is available at texasbarcle.com for registration from November 2 to December 31. Attorneys who view the course can earn 0.5 hour of ethics credit.
The video, an initiative of 2015-2016 State Bar of Texas President Allan K. DuBois, introduces viewers to the life-saving services of the Texas Lawyers’ Assistance Program through the stories of three Texas attorneys who resumed successful lives and practices after seeking help for substance abuse problems. TLAP helps lawyers, judges, and law students whose professional performance is impaired because of substance abuse, dependency, or mental health issues.
