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.
Lawyers can be particularly busy at year end, and expectations can cause significant stress. Would you like some practical strategies and personal techniques to meet these challenges head on? Give us a call. We can help.
