Lawyer Well-Being Week 2020 Resources

According to the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being and several other studies, too many lawyers aren’t thriving. In response, several organizations created the first annual Lawyer Well-Being Week: May 4-8, 2020. This week, organizations across the legal profession will lead and participate in activities that promote health and happiness among lawyers and their support teams. Miles Mediation & Arbitration supports Lawyer Well-Being Week and is committed to sharing information and resources for the legal community. 

 

Over the past few years, there has been a coordinated effort to build awareness around lawyer well-being.  National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being formed in 2016 and published the groundbreaking The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change. Multiple organizations that care about well-being in the profession also are involved, including the ABA Law Practice Division Attorney Well-Being Committee, and the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Program’s Well-Being Committee.
