Wellness for Law Forum
Wellness for Law UK was initiated by Rachel Spearing, Co-Founder of the Bar Wellbeing Project who is a Barrister in practice engaged with the academic study and support for Wellbeing in the legal profession. The organisation is overseen and managed by an Advisory Board of professionals connected to the Network objectives.
Through a Network of Professionals experienced in supporting high performing people, wellness for law exists to support the legal profession in maintaining a healthy and ethical professional working life. It operates as a ‘not for profit’ organization with an ethos of supporting lawyers with education, training and bespoke services to maintain and optimize their performance and wellbeing.

The Forum will be held on Friday 21st June 2019. It will be hosted by UCL in London and sponsored by the Inner Temple. The theme for this year is TRiM for Law (Trauma Risk Management).
This year’s Wellness Forum will review the steps being taken by other professionals, including the military, police, medical and CPS, to manage the risks to their colleagues, respond to the challenges of their work and rehabilitate those who become affected.
