Wellbeing and the legal profession - for life
Vol. 6 - Iss. 4 pp. 34–40
While a highly educated and highly paid field, the legal profession also retains some of the highest rates of substance abuse, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and stress. Jessica Anne Vandervort examines how law school, the American Bar Association, and even non-lawyers can front-load the fight against substance abuse and mental illness in the legal profession.
