This webinar discusses the legal and ethical principles relating to mental health issues in the legal profession. Even before they start their careers, lawyers are faced with mental health disclosure obligations on their bar applications. These obligations follow the attorneys, though perhaps only by implication, for their entire careers. Lawyers’ duties in this regard do not, however, end with self-inquiry, as issues arise concerning the mental health of both colleagues and opponents. Learn here what legal and ethical obligations exist, and how to fulfill them.
