There may never have been a better time to read The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change, a 2017 report by the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being.
The Report “defines well-being and sheds light on the lack of well-being in the legal profession.” It then “offers concrete, actionable recommendations on how to fix the problems […] .” The document can be read online, where recommendations may be accessed by stakeholder (defined as “judges, regulators, legal employers, law schools, bar associations, professional liability carriers, and lawyer assistance programs”), or downloaded as a PDF.
This is an extremely important report and should be considered by every law firm leader.
My experience working with many firms globally, is that some lawyers believe that their problems are unique to them and not widely shared in the profession. That is wrong.
