• Identifying prioritisation and planning techniques
• Analysing productivity schedules and patterns
• Managing procrastination, effective meetings and overwhelming workloads and emails, ‘fighting fire’
• Stress management and resilience
• Time management in legal practice: negotiation, advocacy, mediation, drafting/writing and in court

Morning tea and a light lunch will be provided.
