Well Being in the Legal Profession and Access to Justice

Recent studies have indicated that lawyers are at a higher risk for anxiety, substance abuse and depression than those in the general population. This susceptibility begins in law school and eventually has an impact on society by affecting people who rely on lawyers to manage their everyday legal problems.

This program will feature a keynote presentation about recent findings on status and mental health in the legal profession. It will be followed by a panel discussion with students who are advancing a new way for legal professionals to approach mental health and access to justice.

This program contains 2 Professionalism Hours.


  • Ronit Dinovitzer – Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto
  • Jonathan Koltai – PhD Candidate, Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto
  • Yukimi Henry – Manager, Academic/Personal Counselling and Wellness at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law
