In celebration of Law School Mental Health Day on October 10th, 2022, join us for an open and honest discussion on the unique challenges and obstacles law students face when dealing with mental health challenges while in law school.

Starting with an explanation of the term “lawyer well-being,” students will contribute their perspectives on the current state of law student mental health, the obstacles to seeking help, and brainstorming practical tools and solutions to creating a better future for our lawyers.
