Program Description


Mental health and substance use disorders can affect any attorney, in any setting,

and at any time. Left untreated, they can destroy careers and lives.


  • Discuss where the legal profession currently stands in relation to the historically substantial challenges presented by mental health and substance use disorders and examine the nexus between ethical competence and attorney well-being.
  • Learn how to recognize the impaired attorney, how to approach the conversation with your colleague, and discuss the possible disciplinary and professional liability implications of an impaired attorney’s conduct.
  • Hear about best practices/effective risk management approaches, preventative measures, and proposed policy and well-being initiatives, that solo practitioners and law firms may implement to protect clients as well as save careers.
