Penn Law is launching a pilot program this spring that integrates mental health well-being into the curriculum. The moves comes after a 2017 report by the ABA found high levels of stress, depression and substance abuse within the legal profession.
Associate Dean John Holloway stated, “What’s really exciting about this is that it’s actually getting woven into the curriculum. This is not a bolt-on program that is given less priority than academics. This is part of their academics.”
