    Substance use disorders and mental illness can affect any attorney regardless of gender, culture, ethnicity, age, or socioeconomic status. But no matter what their background, too many attorneys dealing with these issues suffer in silence. Why? Stigma – cultural prejudice and discrimination that labels an individual suffering from such illnesses as defective, or weak, often has more damaging consequences than the illness itself and creates a barrier to treatment.

    This panel will define the stigma, explain the reasons why stigma is so pervasive in the legal profession, and why it is critical to overcome these beliefs. The program will focus on several different “life stages” of an attorney - law student, practicing lawyer, and judge, as well as the unique challenge faced by under-represented minorities and how stigma affects each group. The panel will also identify practical and applicable ways to conquer stigma in the legal community and the regulatory process.
