  • Law & Life:  Enjoy Both – a wellness program for the legal profession
  • Support Groups (including stress support groups, Lawyers in Recovery, The MS Bar Annual Convention)
  • Lawyers in Transition – provides support for attorneys changing the type of law they practice or transitioning out of the profession
  • Smart Start – education for law students
  • Lawyers Helping Lawyers – an annual convention aimed at re-energizing and strengthening the peer volunteer network
  • Law and Life Library – a library of books, pamphlets, audio/video tapes and articles on a wide variety of topics including addiction, alcohol, co-dependency, gambling, marriage and family, mental health, panic attacks, parenting, sexuality, stress, suicide, workaholism, etc.
