About the Committee
The Lawyer Well-Being Committee is charged Improving the well-being of lawyers in the state of Connecticut. The committee will examine the crisis of lawyer well-being that has been documented by research conducted by the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs. The research demonstrates that psychological and emotional disorders, substance use disorders, and opiate or other drug abuse among law students and lawyers far exceed other professions and populations. The committee will use the National Taskforce Report on Lawyer Wellbeing as a blue print for moving lawyer well-being forward. Well-being is described in the report broadly, as will this committee. Representatives on the committee will include members of the bar, regardless of CBA membership, law schools, the bar examining committee and the judicial branch.
