Bree Buchanan, JD, Director of the Texas Lawyers Assistance Program, will provide information on how to identify and respond to a law student or lawyer who may be suffering from a behavioral health issue that could ultimately impact their fitness to practice law. Students will learn the Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct that govern a lawyer’s responsibilities in this circumstance, as well as best practices in responding to a colleague who is experiencing varying degrees of an impairment. Ms. Buchanan will also provide students with information on how to access resources on campus and within the legal profession.
