The path to reforming the ABA standards to promote law student well-being

Dean Janet Stearns of the University of Miami School of Law and Ayat Nizam, 3L and Dual JD and Class President of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and Chair of the ABA Law Student Division have written an article detailing the important work being done to revise the ABA Standards and Rules for Approval of Law Schools to address critical issues of law student well-being. As the authors note, “The time for law schools to fear, stigmatize and place barriers around mental health is no more. Now is the time to bring these issues to light, openly and proudly, with the support of the ABA.”

You can read their article on the ABA for Law Students blog.
