Previewing: The Impaired Lawyer - A Call for Action

Recent studies show that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, addiction and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession.
The Education and Outreach Coordinator from Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers will discuss the early warning signs of impairment and how best to approach impaired individuals. The LCL services that are available to lawyers, judges, their family members and law students will also be detailed. A practicing lawyer with over 40 years of experience will share his story of addiction and impairment and the role that LCL played in saving his life and restoring his place in the legal profession.
This program will educate the bar with scientifically based information about a disease that, if left untreated, can be fatal but with proper treatment have a good prognosis for recovery.
