MWL Professional Parents Affinity Group is pleased to continue its partnership with Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (“LCL”) to bring you this ongoing PARENTING discussion group! MWL is pleased to welcome Jill Carlson, MA LPCC, and a case manager at LCL, who will serve as our discussion group facilitator each month.  


These monthly gatherings are held at the MWL Offices to discuss, debrief, and destress!  We welcome anyone interested in discussing the joys and challenges of parenting through all stages of development, ranging from infancy to grown children. The group is open to all lawyers, judges and law students.  Feel free to attend one gathering or as many that fit into your schedule.  We will offer a variety of formats and topics related to parenting, depending on the needs of the group. Each month, we'll be sure to include some time for open sharing, stress reduction, information gathering and community building.  


All gatherings will take place on the 4th Thursday of the month @ noon–1 pm (likely continuing via ZOOM video or teleconference)  The discussion group is free. All members will be asked to commit to confidentiality.

The MWL Professional Parents Affinity Group hosts monthly luncheons and events, which provide a relaxed environment for MWL's working parents to meet with one another, network, and share their experiences, challenges and successes, as it relates to their families and their professional careers. Based on member input, upcoming gatherings will feature both focused discussions led by a speaker, as well as more casual opportunities to meet and network with one another. The group plans to meet on the 4th Thursday of every month at noon in the MWL offices. All members are welcome to join and get involved.
