Catalysts of Positive Change

The National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being is a coalition of entities committed to catalyzing a movement to improve well-being in the legal profession. In August 2017, the Task Force published a comprehensive report titled The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change. The report spotlights a 2016 study of nearly 13,000 practicing lawyers which found that too many lawyers are not thriving. The report does not stop at identifying problems. It also offers concrete, actionable recommendations for stakeholders across the profession.

READ THE REPORT

The online report is organized by stakeholder–i.e., judges, regulators, legal employers, law schools,  bar associations, LAPs, insurance carriers.

DOWNLOAD THE REPORT

The complete report is available as a PDF for download. It includes the footnotes and appendices for further reading and resources.
