Emotions are a fact of life for clients and lawyers; ignoring emotions may be impossible and destructive.  Lawyers equipped for working with emotions will achieve greater success and satisfaction.  This program will apply Goleman’s concepts of emotional intelligence to law practice, focusing on effectiveness and professionalism with difficult, emotionally entrenched clients, colleagues, or opposing counsel. The CLE event will be led by Professor Richard Reuben of University of Missouri at Columbia Law School. He teaches one of the first law school courses on Emotional Intelligence as well as dispute resolution-related and public law courses.  He has taught at Stanford, Harvard, and Pepperdine law schools and European universities.
