Abstract

Wellbeing is a critical issue for lawyers, law students and legal academics, both in Australia and overseas.

FLIP Stream Director Michael Legg and UNSW Professors Janet Chan and Prue Vines recently convened a research workshop on Wellbeing in a Changing World: The impact of technology and innovation on the legal profession. The workshop was supported by the Law Society of NSW and UNSW Law. It brought together academics researching various factors impacting on lawyers’ wellbeing, including new technology and practice innovations as well as structural changes.
