Law School Wellness Forum #2: Identifying and Managing the Risks to Wellness in the Practice of Law

February 22, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Identifying and Managing the Occupational Risks of Practicing Law

An Open Conversation with Current & Former Virginia State Bar Presidents

Monday, February 22, 2021: 12:00 – 1:30 pm

Zoom Webinar ID: 923 8177 7346

PRESENTATION SLIDES: LSWF 2 VSB Presidents on Risk – INTRO- Slides 2021

The panelists will identify a risk to wellness within the practice of law, as identified in the 2019 report, “The Occupational Risks of Practicing Law,” issued by the Virginia State Bar President’s Special Committee on Lawyer Well-Being.  They will discuss (i) how the risk manifested at different parts of their careers (in self or colleagues) and (ii) what practice pointers have worked to address it.  Then the floor will be open to all your questions. Bring any and all of  your most pressing questions; the panelists will answer as many as possible in the allotted time. We hope this session will help law students think about developing positive coping strategies early so you will convey these practices into the development of your identities as young lawyers.
