Report of the HLS Student Well-Being Working Group

The Report

A Working Group consisting of students, faculty and staff was charged in 2018 with examining how best to build a supportive community culture, communicate resources, define and measure success, and ultimately become a leader in law student well-being. The group’s report includes comparative information regarding mental health challenges faced by law school students and the legal profession generally, a summary of HLS survey findings, a brief overview of actions taken in recent years, and four initial recommendations for improving student well-being.
