Online Webinar


It is no secret that law students and attorneys struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety and stress and have problems with substance abuse. In fact, the American Bar Association (ABA) itself has conducted studies that revealed high rates of mental health disorders and substance use among law students and attorneys. The ABA’s findings have helped put the issue of attorney well-being front and center for the profession. To provide a forum to discuss these issues, LSM has developed a new program—LSM’s WELLness Program. The inaugural event of this new program is September 20, 2023. LSM is pleased to have Ruth Haley Barton as a guest on its Leadership Roundtable. Ruth is the founder of the Transforming Center and has spent over 20 years as a student, a practitioner, and a leader in the area of Christian spirituality and spiritual formation. Ruth is also the author of Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership: Seeking God in the Crucible of Ministry, Pursuing God’s Will Together: A Discernment Practice for Leadership Groups, Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation, Life Together in Christ: Experiencing Transformation in Community, Invitation to Solitude and Silence: Experiencing God’s Transforming Presence. Her latest book, Embracing Rhythms of Work and Rest: From Sabbath to Sabbatical and Back Again, Ruth focuses on how sabbath is more than a practice—it is a way of life ordered around God’s invitation to regular rhythms of work, rest, and replenishment that will sustain us for the long haul of life in leadership. Join us September 20, at 1:00 pm (EST), as Ruth shares with both law students and attorneys on this topic and answers students’ questions.
