Wellness at MLaw

Taking care of yourself encompasses far more than simply proper nutrition and exercise—it includes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Life as a law student is exciting and stimulating, but a healthy and balanced lifestyle can be a challenge to maintain given the demands of law school. By promoting wellness, we hope to provide you with as much support and information as possible.

There are many places to find support on campus, but we know that the size of the University can make these resources difficult to identify and locate. We know, too, that it can be hard to get started when you need help. These pages will provide a guide to a variety of health and wellness resources both at the Law School and on campus. Please click on the links at left to get started.

Michigan Law has joined the ABA Well-Being Pledge and Campaign. The ABA Well-Being Pledge, organized by the ABA Working Group to Advance Well-Being in the Legal Profession, is designed to support lawyer well-being and address the profession’s troubling rates of alcohol and other substance-use disorders, as well as mental health issues.  Based on a framework developed by working group member Patrick Krill, the campaign’s goals are to raise awareness, facilitate a reduction in the incidence of problematic substance-use and mental health distress and improve lawyer well-being. From education to policies to culture, the seven-point pledge identified in the Campaign reflects the core areas on which legal employers should focus and the concrete steps they should take as they seek to achieve those goals.
