  • Lawyers outpace the general population in rates of suicide, depression, alcoholism, substance abuse, and chronic stress. Evidence suggests that this is not a coincidence, but rather the result of the unique combination of occupational hazards that lawyers face throughout their careers.
  • Learn to identify those occupational risks that cannot be mitigated while taking action to manage or eliminate those that can.
  • If we can't take care of ourselves, how can we expect to take care of our clients?
  • An introduction to wellness issues in the legal profession;
  • An exploration of how the unique combination of occupational risks facing lawyers has led our profession to significantly outpace the general population in rates of depression, alcoholism, and substance abuse; and
  • Proposed solutions for managing and mitigating occupational risks and stressors, both at the individual and law firm levels, in order to maximize long-term attorney health, wellness, productivity, and retention.
