“This summit aims to center on the well-being of attorneys and law students,” said Leah Terranova, dean of academic and student affairs, “with a primary focus on closing the divide between the well-being expectations and needs of law students and the available resources provided by law schools and firms.”

KU Law has invited the Kansas Task Force for Lawyer Well-being, the Kansas Lawyers Assistance Program and local firms who have shown an interest and investment in lawyer well-being to participate as co-sponsors of this event.
