NEWS & EVENTS
Lawyers are at risk because of the tragedy and trauma we see and because we can be afraid to ask for the help we need. Here is information about recognizing the signs of suicidal thinking and reaching out if you are concerned.
GROWING CONCERN OVER THE WELL-BEING OF LAWYERS
The ABA has released a groundbreaking and comprehensive report, The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change, created by a coalition of entities within and outside the ABA.
The coalition found that “We are 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, and to reduce the level of toxicity that has allowed mental health and substance use disorders to fester among our colleagues, we have to act now.”
LCL will be looking at ways to encourage and build on the report’s recommendations. We welcome the involvement of our members and interested others in our profession.
LCL will begin a new Path to Lawyer Well-Being Group, October 5th, 4:00 – 5:15 P.M. Topics include: Work Engagement vs. Burnout, Stress & Rejuvenation, Resilience & Optimism, Mindfulness Meditation, Conflict Management, and more. Please join us!
