Wellness and dealing with stress were important subjects for the legal profession long before 2020. Wellness is a critical topic for everyone during 2020. People working in law firms are the most important asset our law firms have and they all need to take care of ourselves. They are doing sometimes stressful work in stressful times.

Margaret Ogden is the wellness coordinator at the Supreme Court of Virginia. The Virginia Lawyers’ Wellness Initiative is providing resources and educational opportunities to help attorneys prioritize wellbeing. Sharon Nelson and I welcomed Margaret Ogden to our Digital Edge podcast to discuss the history and development of this new initiative and how attorneys can seek assistance, take advantage of CLE opportunities, find resources, and more.

The episode is entitled Supreme Court of Virginia’s Lawyers’ Wellness Initiative: A Rousing Success!. There is also a transcript of the podcast for those who would rather read than listen.
