Leading a balanced life when the borders between home and work have been shattered is now a daily struggle. This panel includes paralegal managers in large firms in the U.S. and Canada who’ve all been managing paralegals and staff who’ve had challenges managing expectations from their employers, families, and their communities. You will hear of our own experiences and those of our teams we’ve supervised on how we tackled some of these issues. We plan to offer you some ideas on the following:

- Tactics for managing to work full-time and manage your children’s schooling at home and/or how to manage the wee ones who’ve yet to go to school
- How we’ve managed our own paralegal work, as working managers and address all the management challenges that arose during the pandemic
- How to manage attorney expectations when they are working odd hours, but expect their paralegals to be available when needed
- We want this to be an interactive session, so bring your questions and we’ll share our stories, challenges and successes.
