Join LawCare to discover the findings of its research study Life in the Law at this free, online event.

The research focused on mental health and wellbeing in the legal sector and is the first of its kind in the UK. It was undertaken from October 2020 to January 2021 and over 1,700 professionals from the UK, Republic of Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man took part.

The aim of the research was to take a snapshot of the mental health and wellbeing of the legal profession and help inform future steps the profession must collectively take to improve the culture and practice of law to better support wellbeing.
