LPM’s Muir is honored to be cited twice in the June 2012 newsletter of the National Association of State Judicial Educators (NASJE), entitled "Judicial Balance: Lessons for Life and Law." The newsletter "helps you navigate the sometimes exhilarating and sometimes treacherous waters of being a judge, and makes it easier to find and enhance your fulfillment in serving the public as a judicial officer."
The first cite is to Muir’s article "Emotional Intelligence for Lawyers." The NASJE notes that "Emotional Intelligence (‘EI’) is critical to professional and personal success, yet lawyers score lower than the general population in EI competency. Defined as the ability to process emotion-laden information, proficient EI optimizes decision-making and analyses. The good news is that EI can be learned."
The second cite is to Muir’s article on “What Do Women Want? Challenging the Diversity Myth” in Law Practice Today, June 2012. The NASJE introduces the article by saying: "Despite gender-equality initiatives and women’s proven success in law, the difference in earnings and power between genders is alarming. Perhaps missing is an acceptance that excellence requires true diversity: diversity in attitudes and expectations about career and lifestyle, as well as gender and race."
