We realize that being a law student can be challenging at times. Boston College Law School is committed to offering students holistic support to promote overall well-being. Taking care of your physical wellbeing is also an important part of your professional duty to clients. A recent American Bar Association task force defined lawyer wellbeing as follows:

"We define lawyer well-being as a continuous process whereby lawyers seek to thrive in each of the following areas: emotional health, occupational pursuits, creative or intellectual endeavors, sense of spirituality and greater purpose in life, physical health, and social connections with others. Lawyer well-being is part of the lawyer’s ethical duty of competence. It includes a lawyer’s duty to make healthy, positive work-life choices…and maintaining their own long-term well-being."
