Washington Lawyer - July/August 2021 - 28

Growth and Engagement
A challenge for many large organizations like the D.C.
Bar during the pandemic was how to stay connected
to members and keep them engaged. The Bar went a
step further by working to ensure its programming was
tailored to the emerging and immediate needs of its
members.
The Bar's Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Program and
Communities presented hundreds of valuable virtual
programs, many addressing the unique challenges
confronting lawyers in the age of COVID-19. The Practice
Management Advisory Service (PMAS) was a critical
resource for solo and small firm practitioners, while the
Lawyer Assistance Program (LAP) focused on attorney
wellness. The Bar's Legal Ethics Helpline remained
accessible to members, fielding more than 2,000 ethics
queries.
Through Washington Lawyer magazine and the Bar's other
communication platforms, members shared their stories
about how they navigated the new normal, as well as
their concerns around financial wellness, privacy rights,
the survival of small firms and solo practices, and the
stresses of remote work, among others.
The COVID-19 crisis upended plans for a three-day,
in-person conference commemorating the centennial
of the 19th Amendment, but the Bar swiftly converted
the program into a virtual event. The conference, which
brought together prominent legal experts, historians, and
journalists over two days in October 2020, covered the
history of voting rights and ongoing challenges.
Professional Enrichment
When the D.C. Bar decided to close its headquarters in
March 2020 to ensure everyone's safety, the CLE Program
sprang into action by transitioning its courses online
to continue to help members achieve professional
excellence. This year the CLE Program offered 226 live
online courses (including a record 81 new courses) and
an additional 150 on-demand classes. Overall, more than
6,500 members took advantage of the CLE Program's
wide-ranging programming.
New classes addressed timely and relevant topics such
as vaccines and immunization law, the challenges
and opportunities of returning to the workplace postpandemic,
and taking white supremacy to court, focusing
on the Charlottesville case.
Last July the CLE Program won the Association for
Continuing Legal Education's Award of Outstanding
Achievement (Programs) for its on-demand Mandatory
Course on the District of Columbia Rules of Professional
Conduct and D.C. Practice.
"
This was the best online experience I've had during COVID. The class was so
engaged . . . While I would have loved to take the class in person, this was the
closest I've come to feeling like I was at an in-person event.
