Recent studies have found alarming high rates of depression, anxiety, stress, and substance abuse among attorneys. Are lawyers doomed to be unhappy? Is there something about the profession -- or the people who choose to practice it -- that breeds unhappiness? Does the law school experience contribute to changing lawyers' mental health and behavioral habits for the worse? What can law students and lawyers do to foster their own satisfaction and the satisfaction of their colleagues?
This class will explore these questions using a variety of materials -- from scientific studies about mental health, to self-health guides drawing on the field of positive psychology, to works of popular culture exploring these themes.
Exam Notes: (None) Class requires a series of papers, assignments, or presentations throughout the semester
