Law School is stressful. The expectations, responsibilities, and work load that law students face can be overwhelming. Just like judges and lawyers, law students can also experience the consequences of living a stressful life such as: exhaustion, relationship issues, time management problems, depression, anxiety, and substance use concerns.
Thankfully, law students are in the best position to develop good habits and find resources that can help mitigate the stress. COLAP is a free and confidential resource for law students and bar applicants to build resiliency and develop coping strategies for a career in the legal profession.
Navigating the bar application process while completing law school can pose its own unique set of stressors and challenges. The Colorado Lawyer Assistance Program helps applicants find resources during this process, particularly for character and fitness issues.
