The Integrated Lawyer: A Symposium on Wellbeing and the Practice of Law
January 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This symposium provides a forum for sharing insights, research, practical tools and innovative approaches for promoting the development of wellbeing from a ‘whole lawyer’ perspective. There is significant evidence that personal wellbeing affects the quality of professional legal practice and work life satisfaction. Lawyers are reported to have high rates of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and dissatisfaction with professional life. There is also evidence that habits and ways-of-being developed during law school are contributing factors.
Based on the model put forth by the National Task Force on Lawyer Wellbeing (August 2017), participants will be invited to explore the domains of emotional, social, physical, spiritual, and cognitive wellness with the overall goal of introducing lifelong approaches for thriving within the legal profession. Content experts from the various domains will present on ways they are using their expertise to develop wellbeing with law students, practicing attorneys, mediators, and others.
