Wellness Network For Law
National Wellness for Law Forum –
Research continues to indicate that symptoms of psychological distress in law students begin early in law school and continue throughout their studies and into their professional lives as legal practitioners.
The 2018 National Wellness for Law Forum will be an opportunity to share research, scholarship, successful practice and future thinking around the theme: ‘Do No Harm’. The emphasis will be upon identifying ways in which law can be created, administered, practised and taught with an emphasis upon avoiding harm to others.
The Forum will be held on 15 – 16 February 2018 at Bond University Law Faculty
The forum includes invited plenary speakers and panel discussions, as well as paper and poster presentations.
Day 1 – Thursday 15 February will focus on wellness in legal education.
Day 2 – Friday 16 February will focus on wellness in the legal profession.
Day 1 – $50.00
Day 2 – $50.00
Both days – $100.00
