Presidents of Illinois' Law School Student Bar Associations Sign Mental Health Pledge

The nine presidents of Illinois’ law school student bar associations today signed a pledge to improve the wellbeing and mental health of their campuses.

The pledge coincides with the American Bar Association’s National Law School Mental Health Day as well as World Mental Health Day.

“We see the lengthy history and results of substance abuse within this profession,” the letter states. “We want to have a different outcome. We want to address wellbeing and mental health issues among our student bodies by advocating for a better future throughout our legal education, during the bar examination period, and during our professional careers.”

Read the full letter.
