Hon. Karen Peters and Libby Coreno, the co-chairs of the NYSBA Attorney Well-being Task Force join the show to talk about their path on how they became involved in this area of the law, how cultural expectations have led to unhealthy work habits in the legal profession and how the Task Force will examine the factors that negatively impact the health and well-being of the legal community.
They also talk about the role stress, substance abuse, and technology play in the lives of attorneys and how they have a negative impact on their personal and professional lives.
Justice Peters is the former Presiding Justice of the Third Appellate Division and the first woman to hold that position and Coreno is general counsel to Bonacio Construction, Inc and also has a boutique practice where she advises clients on zoning, planning and real property development.
