Welcome to "The Thriving Lawyers Podcast, brought to you by ReelTime Creative Learning Experiences!

The sad but increasingly indisputable truth is many lawyers are not “thriving” but in fact are experiencing “a ‘profound ambivalence’ about their work,” according to the American Bar Association's National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being.

The good news is that the legal community, often resistant to change, has begun to seriously confront the issues that are helping to create that ambivalence.

Join us each week for candid, but ultimately inspiring conversation with lawyers from around the U.S. and Canada (and maybe points beyond) who have found ways to truly thrive in the practice of law.

We may even discuss a movie or two, on our never-ending quest for inspiration, motivation, and practical solutions. (That is how Reel Time got started, after all!)
