Lawyer Well-Being Committee


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.
