Attorney Wellness

“The time is now to use your experience, status, and leadership to construct a profession built on greater well-being, increased competence, and greater public trust.” -ABA 2017 National Task Force Report on Lawyer Well-Being


The Alabama State Bar’s Quality of Life, Health and Wellness Task Force is working to make lawyer well-being a top priority. The group’s purpose is to explore programs, accumulate information and educate members about wellness issues and resources and develop a CLE to be offered to members throughout the state. In addition, the task force will formulate a plan to celebrate May as Mental Health Awareness Month.

Wellness Month: May

The Quality of Life, Health and Wellness Task Force is organizing an Attorney Wellness Month for the month of May. In addition to offering a free, online wellness CLE and disseminating wellness tips through the bar’s website, newsletter and social media sites, there is also a wellness challenge among attorneys throughout the state.
