    In this 60-minute webinar, co-chairs of the National Task Force on Well-Being will discuss the group's report, "The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change," published August 2017. This groundbreaking initiative of the Commission on Lawyers Assistance Programs, National Organization of Bar Counsel and Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers puts into action the group's mission of "creating a movement to improve the health and well-being of the legal profession." Speakers will discuss two recent studies that revealed high rates of substance use and mental health disorders among law students and lawyers, and which served as catalysts for the report. Speakers will explore how bar associations and members of the profession can promote lawyers' well being, thereby ensuring fitness to practice, competent representation, and ethical engagement.

    Bree Buchanan, Director, State Bar of Texas Lawyers' Assistance Program,
