APRL joined with NOBC, CoLAP, the ABA Center, and others to create a National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being, which issued a lengthy report with recommendations for advancing lawyer wellness. APRL members on the Task Force were Lynda Shely, Jayne Reardon, Don Campbell, and Charles Gruber.
Both the Conference of Chief Justices and the ABA President Hilarie Bass are backing the initiative to have all stakeholders in the legal profession recognize and support the importance of lawyer wellness as part of being a competent lawyer.
