Linked – Virginia Supreme Court Approves Lawyer Wellness Rule Changes
I’m a big fan of this change, as you might imagine.
“A change to Rule of Professional Conduct 1.1 adds a comment saying “A lawyer’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being impacts the lawyer’s ability to represent clients and to make responsible choices in the practice of law. Maintaining the mental, emotional, and physical ability necessary for the representation of a client is an important aspect of maintaining competence to practice law.” This change is effectively immediately.”
Now to get that adopted in every state, and for every profession until it’s just a normal, accepted, practice for everyone.
