The current well-being movement in the legal profession is fairly nascent, tracing its roots to surveys in
and in the
, as well as the ensuing
National Task Force Report
published in 2017. There appears to be a lot of progress among law schools, law firms, and legal employers. At the same time, work remains.
In observance of Wellbeing Week in Law (May 2-6) and Mental Health Awareness Month, this panel, supplemented by an interactive audience, will provide background information on the surveys and Report, as well as first-hand stories of recovery and resources and suggestions as we proceed on the path toward well-being.
Join us for the panel followed by a virtual Well-Being Week Social Hour.
