The current well-being movement in the legal profession is fairly nascent, tracing its roots to surveys in law schools and in the legal profession, 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.
