Event description

Description

The mental-health crisis in law is at an all-time high. Close to 28 percent of lawyers struggle with depression, an illness that afflicts 8 percent of the general population. Anxiety, meanwhile, hits 19 percent of lawyers but only 12 percent of adults.

Clearly, something has gone terribly wrong. But what? And, more importantly, how do we fix it?

We began to answer those questions in the Spring Issue of Precedent, but we want to keep the conversation going.

On Monday, March 26, join senior editor Daniel Fish as he sits down with a panel of lawyers who we profiled in our latest issue. This will be an exclusive opportunity to hear their personal stories of resilience and to discuss what we can actually do to make things better — for lawyers who struggle and for the profession as a whole.

Panellists:

  • John Hoyles, former president of the Canadian Bar Association
  • Malini Vijaykumar, associate at Stevenson Whelton MacDonald & Swan LLP
  • Frankie Wood, founding partner of Wood Gold LLP



This is a dry event. Snacks and non-alchoholic beverages will be served.

Panel to start at 6:15 p.m.
