Being a good law student and lawyer is about much more than performing well in the classroom. It’s about being a well-rounded, self-aware, positive contributor to one’s professional and personal community. In order to take care of and provide excellent service to our clients and the public we serve, lawyers must first take care of ourselves. To do so, we encourage students to be intentional and deliberate about proactively prioritizing wellness. We don’t always get it right, but we strive for balance constantly and readjust as needed.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of pursuing activities and making lifestyle choices that lead to a state of holistic health. There are 8 dimensions of wellness: emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual, physical, environmental, financial, and career.
Our office provides programming and access to resources for Law Students that cover all eight dimensions.
