Indiana’s Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program is partnering with the American Bar Association Commission on Lawyer
Assistance Programs to host this year’s national conference in October in Indianapolis.
The conference focuses on wellness, addictions, and mental-health issues. This year’s theme is “Lawyers Helping Lawyers since 1988.” Experts will present information on topics such as addiction and recovery; the aging of the profession; stress and compassion fatigue; and how to reach out to judges, lawyers, and law students. Speakers include Dr. Will Miller, a therapist, motivational speaker, and professor of communications at Purdue University.
The 23rd annual conference is at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis Oct. 5-8. More information can be found online on the ABA’s website. Judicial officers who want to attend the conference on a scholarship from the Indiana Supreme Court can download an online application.
