Syncing With Your Cycle: Working with Your Menstrual Cycle to Create a More Balanced & Supportive Legal Practice

1h 4m

Created on November 14, 2022





In this CLE taught by attorney and consultant Alyssa Johnson, attendees will learn tools for syncing the menstrual cycle with their legal practice to experience a more balanced and supportive practice. Implications of not aligning one's practice with their menstrual cycle include possible ethical violations, which will be discussed at length. Ms. Johnson discusses each phase of the menstrual cycle, as well as ways to shift how one works so that one's legal practice is working in partnership with the body, rather than against it. The current structure of the legal profession doesn't adequately support those who menstruate, and changes must occur within the profession to accommodate the needs of those who do. Ms. Johnson analyzes a telling 2022 ABA Report for its findings around sexism, the number of hours that lawyers work, and remote working in order to provide a more comprehensive picture of the profession and where changes need to be made.
