For Law Students

Join us for a Twitter chat on Law Student Wellness on Mental Health Day


Students face countless issues and stressors as they transition both into law school and ultimately from law school into the profession. Some students will seek assistance when issues and pressures mount, while others will attempt to go it alone.

In recognition of National Mental Health Day for law schools, this national Twitter Chat on March 28 at 1 p.m. EDT aims to encourage students to seek help when they need it by addressing questions around stigma, bar application character and fitness, and anything else on the minds of students and those who care about them.

The panelists are:

  • Mistie Bauscher, Former Conditional Admittee (@bauschlawyer)
  • Brian Cuban, author of The Addicted Lawyer (@bcuban)
  • Amanda Lee, Harvard Law School, Student Government President (@HLS_StudentGov)

The chat is hosted by The ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (@ABACoLAP) and the ABA Law Student Division (@ABAlsd).

Follow along and join the conversation at #LawStudentWellness.
