The Attorney Well-Being Committee (AWBC) is devoted to exploring and providing practical strategies to enable legal professionals to thrive. To get started, we've created four subcommittees:
Law Practice Management: Exploring all aspects of leadership and management that influence well-being and success, including engagement, meaningful work, work-life balance, strengths-oriented management, optimal performance management, etc.
Physical & Psychological Health: Helping lawyers feel strong and healthy, including the importance of good health habits (exercise, nutrition, sleep) and psychological thriving (addressing depression, anxiety, and burnout, enhancing mental wellness).
Substance Abuse & Addiction: Investigating underlying explanations for the prevalence of substance abuse and addiction in the legal profession, raising awareness, and recommending strategies to address the issues.
Law Students & Young Professionals: Investigating obstacles to thriving for law students and young professionals and providing strategies for improving well-being.
