At the Alexandria Bar Association, we take to heart the statement that a healthy lawyer is a better lawyer. We believe that improving lawyer well-being is good for business, good for clients, and that it is the right thing to do. We have therefore formed this Lawyer Well-being Committee and our mission as follows:
Our mission is to promote all aspects of lawyer well-being by helping lawyers achieve measured progress in the six dimensions of well-being identified by the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being: Emotional, Occupational, Intellectual, Spiritual, Social, and Physical.
To help achieve our goal:
(i) We will develop and offer education programming, activities, and events that focus on well-being related topics;
(ii) We will help the bar association develop a best practice model policy to help our members respond to lawyers in distress, foster diversity and inclusion, improve mentoring practices, and promote work-life balance; and
(iii) We will help the bar association develop information on and compile resources for lawyer well-being.
