Introduction


‍A career in law often entails long working days, intense pressure and little time for self-care. So it's no wonder that lawyers are at high risk of burnout. In fact, a recent study found that 69% of legal professionals have struggled with their mental health in the last year.

Agenda

1
What is wellbeing, and does it differ in a professional vs social environment?
