Well-Being as an Aspect of Lawyer Competence

January 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In 2017, the National Task Force on Lawyer Well Being published The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change. The report issued in response to two studies that revealed alarming statistics with respect to the well-being of the legal profession. A critical theme of the report emphasizes that well-being is an indispensable part of a lawyer’s duty of competence. A lawyer’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being may impact the lawyer’s ability to represent clients and to make responsible choices in the practice of law. Maintaining the mental, emotional, and physical well-being necessary for the representation of a client is an important aspect of maintaining competence to practice law. Join our panel of experts as we explore the current state of lawyer well-being, learn how to incorporate well-being strategies into every day practice, and explore the correlation between well-being and general lawyer competency.

Panelists:

Jonathan White, Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel

Sarah Meyer, Colorado Lawyer Assistance Program

Debra Austin, University of Denver Sturm College of Law
