The Path to Lawyer Well-Being | Practical Recommendations for Positive Change

This groundbreaking and comprehensive report, released in August 2017, was created by a coalition of entities from the American Bar Association and throughout the profession. It contains 44 recommendations for 7 groups of stakeholders along with an action plan, and has been the basis of many more initiatives to reduce stigma and bias regarding seeking help for serious mental health issues.

The coalition stated, “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.”

This program will provide a review of the original recommendations, outline the advancement that has taken place in the profession, discuss the critical intersection of well-being with diversity, equity, and inclusion, and address barriers to fundamental change.

This CLE is approved for credit through April 20, 2024.
