The National Task Force for Lawyer Well-Being 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, Chase Andersen and his guests will address each of these themes in turn.
This program will focus on the theme: taking small, incremental steps to change how law is practiced and how lawyers are regulated to instill greater well-being in the profession.
The Task Force Report identified the rates of how our profession is falling short in supporting lawyer well-being. Stigma keeps lawyers from seeking and offering help. Our actual and perceived biases create and maintain legal organizational cultures that stand in the way of recovery from these illnesses and well-being. This program will dissect these challenges and will delve into how we can move forward as a profession, including specific strategies for changing the culture, reducing toxicity, and increasing well-being.
