The Section on Balance in Legal Education is a group of law faculty and law school professional staff who seek to enhance the overall health, well-being and life satisfaction of law students and lawyers. Many involved in legal education have become concerned with evidence of problems such as depression, substance abuse, erosion of values, dissatisfaction, and disengagement among law students and practicing lawyers.

The Section on Balance in Legal Education and its members seek to investigate these problems, both intellectually and empirically, and to explore potential causes, contributing factors, and solutions. The Section on Balance in Legal Education is organized under the auspices of the Association of American Law Schools. We are governed by an executive board, and welcome new members.
