Ancient Viruses to Modern Treatment: Substance Abuse in the Legal Profession (CLE Course Preview)April 29, 2019
Is an ancient virus the reason humans are susceptible to substance use disorders? How has modern medicine changed the way we treat substance use disorders? If I know a colleague who has a problem with alcohol or drugs, what can I do to help? This course answers these important questions so that today's lawyers have the tools they need to help themselves or a colleague.
Presented by O’Melveny partner Houman Ehsan, an attorney–physician who focuses his practice on the nexus of medicine, business, and the law.
