I rode the subway up to midtown Manhattan last week, to the sound studio at ALM Media, to record a podcast with the brilliant and wonderful Leigh Jones.
We talked about lawyer suicide, in response to several recent suicides by BigLaw partners. It was a serious conversation about a very serious topic, and you can listen to it here.
Inevitably, we expanded the discussion to cover the broader issue of lawyer mental health and lawyer unhappiness.
My thanks to Law.com and Leigh and Vanessa Blum, and their colleagues.
