The Path to Lawyer Well-Being and the Legal Profession- Breaking the Stigma of Asking for Help

Event Description

In Person CLE Program

To register for the remote webcast for this program, please call 612-333-1183.

A groundbreaking and comprehensive report, released in August 2017, was created by a coalition of entities from the American Bar Association and throughout the profession. 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.”  In this program Joan Bibelhausen, Executive Director of Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, will seek to provide solutions for breaking the stigma of asking for help.
