Free Student Panel & Cocktail | October 19, 2018, 1:00 – 4:00 pm, The Westin Ottawa

Law and Happiness : Preventing Mental Health Problems

Law students and young lawyers must be included in the mental health conversation. What are some of the main stressors and issues for law students and young lawyers? What resources are available in order for law students and lawyers to maintain a healthy legal mind?

This Free Student Panel is part of the 2018 CIAJ Annual Conference, which will address the way in which Canada’s justice system interacts with mental health at differing levels. Our Conference will present a multidisciplinary analysis (calling upon experts in law, psychiatry, psychology and social work) of the challenges faced by the intersection of mental illness and the law. Over 40 speakers will discuss systemic issues, difficulties in the courtroom, philosophical considerations, necessary future improvements, and much more!
