Each year the ABA Law Student Division and the ABA CoLAP Law School Committee partner on the national Mental Health Day Program. This initiative is intended to spotlight the critical importance of our own well-being, and specific strategies to protect our well-being in law school and in the transition to the real world of law practice.
Watch the replay of our conversation with national thought leaders on law student well-being and the impact of the pandemic on law schools and the legal profession going forward.
You can download the slides from the presentation as well.
