It has long been known that lawyers and law students have especially high rates of alcohol problems. We will discuss how those problems evolve in both personal and professional contexts, and how they can be identified and addressed. Attorney Faneuf will bring the perspective of an attorney with relevant lived experience, and Dr. Fortgang will provide a perspective based on many years of clinical work with alcoholism and with lawyers. We will also discuss available forms of help and treatment, including the Lawyer Assistance Program, a free and confidential resource available to attorneys and law students across the country.
