    The issues of alcoholism, substance use disorders, and mental health issues are ones which affect all lawyers who care about client protection. Indeed, lawyers struggling to keep themselves well may not be physically, emotionally, or mentally capable of serving their clients ethically. Listen as Lindsey and Bree explain why this is such a big issue for the legal profession and learn how some systems and people are changing the way they have always done business to better serve clients and lawyers.

    Our expert panel will help you:

    • Develop background knowledge on lawyer wellness
    • Link lawyer wellness to client protection, prevention of discipline, and avoiding legal malpractice
    • Provide examples of changes made to systems, practices, and personal behaviors that help protect lawyer well-being and better serve clients.

    Further complimentary resources are available from the website for the ABA Working Group to Advance Well-Being in the Legal Profession, including a newly published Well-Being Toolkit for Lawyers and Legal Employers.
