About the Seminar
According to a recent survey on Mental Health and Substance Abuse, over 250,000 or 20.6% of Attorneys in the US suffer from a problematic relationship with substances. The same study indicated more than 86 percent of law firm leaders said that depression occurred in their firms. Over 93 percent said the same for anxiety
In short, this is a very real human and business issue, with emotional well-being, client engagement and retention, malpractice exposures, and reputational risk all on the line.
One of the first programs to address emotional well-being in the legal profession, this event is a must-attend for law firms, general, and in-house counsel. Join us as we examine how safeguarding attorneys, improving law firm culture, and ensuring the highest level of service are inextricably linked. Walk away with a better understanding of preventative measures and protocols for assisting those suffering from substance use disorder, anxiety, depression, and mental diagnosis.
