Improving Law Student Resilience: An Australian Perspective
AbstractDo university legal clinics, clinical legal educators and health practitioners have a role to play in building the resilience of law students to better equip them to manage their academic studies and their professional lives as they move into legal practice? Given that mental health issues such as depression and anxiety are rife across Australia’s law student and legal professional populations, we wondered if developing a legal clinic model in collaboration with a university-based health service would offer one way to address these concerns.
