LAW 7650 - Wellness and Lawyer Competence

"To be a good lawyer, one has to be a healthy lawyer. Sadly, our profession is falling short when it comes to well-being." These comments made by the ABA Task Force will be explored in the context of scientific data and empirically based practices, creating the groundwork for this survey course. The course will emphasize a holistic approach to success, competence and thriving as a law student and lawyer through exploration of current research and evidence-based skills that foster the basic domains of well-being: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, environmental, occupational, and financial.
