Abstract
The current COVID-19 crisis has greatly impacted all industries across the world and the legal industry is no exception. Recently conducted studies show how the pandemic instigated a spike in the stress and anxiety levels of lawyers. Thus, a significant increase of alcoholism, mental health distress, and other related health problems had been noted in the legal industry. This underscores the importance of having a mental health response program that could provide attorney-specific clinical interventions.

Our panel of key thought leaders and practitioners will offer a comprehensive discussion of legal professionals’ mental health amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Speakers will also provide significant tips and strategies on how to maintain sound mental well-being in the legal industry, especially in these trying times
