Attorneys are twice as likely as the general population to struggle with substance abuse and depression, and the suicide rate is higher than for any other profession. Come find out why substance abuse is so prevalent in the legal field, and how you can help others in your future profession who may suffer from this disease. Presenters will discuss warning signs, as well as your duties under the Rules of Professional Responsibility.
Texas Tech Law and Texas Lawyers’ Assistance Program (TLAP) are joining together to give you the tools you need to help yourself and others. Speakers will include a recovering attorney, a representative from Texas Tech’s Center for Study of Addiction and Recovery, and a representative from TLAP.
Lunch from Dickey’s BBQ will be provided. Please make plans to join us!
