You graduated, you took the bar, and now the wait for results. Even during normal times the uncertainty of the next step has a heavy weight on recent graduates. COVID-19 has added an additional obstacle to overcome in the already competitive legal world. There is a heavy push to take care of your mental health during these times. On this panel, we will hear from mental health professionals and attorneys on post grad depression. Our panel will discuss new lawyer mental health while adapting to the new rigor of practicing or dealing with finding employment post-bar. The panel is an opportunity to learn about what services are available for new attorneys, especially during these unpredictable times dealing with COVID-19.
