SALT LAKE CITY, UT-There is a wellness crisis in the legal profession, according to the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-being and the American Bar Association. Too many lawyers are not thriving and Jones Waldo wants to be part of the solution.
“A 2019 study of Utah lawyers reveals that too many lawyers experience chronic stress, burnout, high rates of depression, substance abuse, and a lack of social support from peers. Like the Utah State Bar, Jones Waldo takes these issues seriously.” Said Mark Tolman, Chair of the Jones Waldo Lawyer Well-Being Committee. “We are committed to improving lawyer well-being and will show our commitment with our participation in Lawyer Well-Being Week. This is just the start of other wellness initiatives specifically targeted at improving the well-being of our attorneys!”
During Lawyer Well-being Week (observed this year May 4-8, 2020), Jones Waldo was set to host several events to promote physical, emotional, and mental wellness in our profession. In light of workplace changes we have implemented associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we will move to a remote participation experience that consists of a daily article, video, and physical activity that can be done safely from home.
