Aiming to find “measurable” solutions for the health and substance abuse problems that plague many lawyers, the state bar association has launched a 9-pronged initiative, staffed by current and former judges and past bar association presidents, among others, that will attempt to comprehensively lay out what to do about the problem.

The initiative aims to build off a major 2016 American Bar Association-driven study of lawyers’ health and well-being by laying out specific ”mitigation efforts,” or solutions, that can be employed by organizations and lawyers spanning the legal field, according to interviews with the co-chairs of the initiative, New York State Bar Association President Scott Karson, and an NYSBA spokeswoman.
