Lawyer Well-Being Massachusetts
First and foremost, our Committee wants to wish you many congratulations on your new journey through legal education! It is our hope that this document can provide you with support and guidance as you begin this new path in the law. This Guide was prepared by the Standing Committee in collaboration with its Legal Education Subcommittee – a group of lawyers, current law students, and law school faculty and administrators – to help you best prepare for success as a law student and lifelong learner.
The primary focus of this Guide is to highlight some of the resources, tips, and practices that you as a law student can utilize to improve your chances for success, however you define it. We suggest these resources while emphasizing the importance of remaining true to yourself as you assume the professional identity of an attorney. The experiences and forms of knowledge that bring you to law school inform how you learn the law and will aid you in charting your professional career.
