The Elusiveness of Well-Being in the Legal Profession

After reviewing 11 years of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, The Washington Post identified the law as the most stressful profession. With all the stressors and demands of the legal profession, is prioritizing mental and physical health attainable for legal professionals?

During this panel, Bree Buchanan and Patrick Krill, two global leaders in the study of health and well-being of the legal profession, will share data from their research on attorney mental health and substance abuse and discuss its implications for lawyers, clients, and public trust in the legal profession.

The panelists will also provide recommendations on realistic practices that all lawyers—from BigLaw to solos—can implement to support their health and well-being and the effective delivery of legal services.
