Diversity & the Bar Magazine
Studies show that lawyers suffer from high rates of depression and mental illness. A new study by a law professor who battles clinical depression says law schools can do a better job of talking to future lawyers about the issue of mental illness within the legal profession. In an essay in the Journal of Legal Education, Charlotte School of Law Assistant Professor Brian Clarke argues that law schools too often avoid dealing with the "the dark side" of being a lawyer. Having a more candid conversation with students about the challenges of the job can help them meet and overcome them after the graduate, he says.
