|There was a time in the not-so-distance past when wellness programs in U.S. law schools primarily focused on preventing substance abuse and suicide. Professor Mary Lynch of Albany Law Schools, editor of the Best Practices for Legal Education Blog writes about how Law Student Wellness Programs have changed.
Best Practices for Legal Education was created with two goals in mind:
1) to create a useful web-based source of information on current reforms in legal education arising from the publication of Roy Stuckey’s Best Practices for Legal Education and the Carnegie Foundation’s Educating Lawyers; and
2) to create a place where those interested in the future of legal education can freely exchange ideas, concerns, and opinions. The blog contributors and editor document and record the most recent innovations and academic experiments accompanying the legal education reform movement – and stimulate dialogue between and among all sectors of the legal academy.
