The ABA Report: The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change was released in 2017. To be a good lawyer, one has to be a healthy lawyer. Sadly, our profession is falling short when it comes to well-being. The findings revealed in the report are incompatible with a sustainable legal profession and raise profound implications for a lawyer’s basic competence. The report’s recommendations focus on five separate themes. In this occasional series, Joan Bibelhausen and her guests will address each of these themes in turn.
This program focuses on the following theme: Lawyer well-being is an indispensable part of a lawyer’s duty of competence. Speakers will discuss the connection between well-being and ethical practice. By reducing the stigma about well-being and getting help when needed, the incidence of ethical complaints may be reduced. Research shows that lawyers who are dealing with significant stress or mental health (including substance use) issues are more likely to experience ethics problems. Speakers will address the recommendation that regulators take action to meaningfully communicate that lawyer well-being is a priority. Finally, speakers will review the strategic planning process through which the OLPR is addressing these recommendations.
