What Makes Lawyers Happy
Practicing law can be stressful. Unmanaged stress can lead to career dissatisfaction, mental health problems and substance abuse. Recent research based on a survey of New York Lawyers and lawyers from several other states identifies the key elements to keeping stress at bay and finding balance in lawyering. These protective elements of happy lawyering will be discussed by the panel as well as the signs and symptoms of mental health problems that sabotage health and happiness and jeopardize your ability to practice law competently.

Sponsored by the
Lawyer Assistance Program, the Law Practice Management Committee and the Committee on Continuing Legal Education of the New York State Bar Association, the Oswego County Bar Association and the Onondaga County Bar Association.
