CBA Law Center
30 Bank Street
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.
