New Article on Lawyer Well-Being and Diversity

A recent article in the ABA Section of Litigation’s Diversity & Inclusion Newsletter makes the case for improving lawyer well-being to achieve greater diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

In August 2017, the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being released the report, The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change, which sets out 44 recommendations for legal stakeholders to improve the health and well-being of the legal profession, including a call for initiatives that prioritize diversity and inclusion.

In “Lawyer Well-Being: An Uncharted Path to Increasing Diversity and Inclusion,” authors Bree Buchanan and Jayne Reardon discuss in detail how well-being and diversity are intertwined, and how the stigma that prevents lawyers from seeking help can act as an even greater barrier for minority lawyers.
