About the Program                                                            

To be a good lawyer, one has to be a healthy lawyer. Recent research has disclosed that too many lawyers and law students experience chronic stress and high rates of depression and substance use. Our profession is at a crossroads. To maintain public confidence in the profession, to meet the need for innovation in how we deliver legal services, to increase access to justice, we have to act now. Change will require a wide-eyed and candid assessment by attorneys of their state of being, accompanied by courageous commitment to re-envisioning what it means to live a healthy life as a lawyer.

You Will Learn

  • Use of Lawyer Wellness Self-Assessment Questionnaire
  • How to identify warnings signs and risk factors for lawyer well-being
  • About normalizing the need for help
  • How to access resources to assist lawyers
  • “Wellness is not the absence of illness. Wellness is the presence of health.”
