Commission on Professionalism and LAP Team Up For Wellness CLE

free wellness CLE Commission LAPEach month, Hon. Lynn Egan of the Circuit Court in Cook County hosts a free lunchtime seminar for all Illinois lawyers. Every monthly CLE program spotlights a different subject-matter or issue impacting the profession.  

As the holidays are approaching, stress levels rocket — in and outside of the office. Therefore, this December served as the perfect opportunity to offer a free attorney wellness CLE program for Illinois lawyers. 

On December 13th, the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism and the Lawyers’ Assistance Program (LAP) will team up with Judge Egan to address the declining wellness of lawyers across the country and offer solutions amidst this health and well-being crisis. 

Executive Directors of both the Commission on Professionalism and LAP will present at the wellness CLE alongside Judge Egan. 

Shedding light on the nature of the mental health issues impacting the legal profession, Robin Belleau will identify the signs and symptoms of those suffering from depression, anxiety, and addiction. Robin will also walk attendees through the process of referring colleagues to LAP and how to properly support your team members in need. 

While Jayne Reardon will share her experience as a member of the National Task Force on Attorney Well-Being which developed the ABA’s Attorney Well-Being Report this August. Jayne will also bring the issue back to Illinois. She will share data on substance abuse, mental illness, and wellness CLE programming in the state, and explain the rationale for the new Illinois CLE requirement 

The upcoming wellness CLE will be held at the Thompson Center from 12:00 to 1:15 PM on the December 13th in the Assembly Hall.  

Lawyers can register on-site on the day of the seminar or in advance by contacting Joe Fleming at joseph.fleming@cookcountyil.gov. We hope to see you there. You won’t want to miss this program.
