Penn will be the first top law school to require attorney mental health training for students | The Daily Pennsylvanian
Penn Law will launch a pilot program this spring to integrate sessions on attorney well-being into mandatory coursework, making it the first top-ranked law school in the country to do so.

In 2017, the American Bar Association reported high levels of stress, depression, and substance abuse among practicing lawyers. In response to the report, Penn Law developed the program on the importance of attorney mental health.

1992 College graduate John Hollway, associate dean and executive director of the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice, said the program will focus on the resilience and mindfulness of lawyers. The pilot program will be integrated as a module into the mandatory upper-level course titled "Professional Responsibility."

“What’s really exciting about this is that it’s actually getting woven into the curriculum,” Hollway said. “This is not a bolt-on program that is given less priority than [students’] academics. This is part of their academics.”
