Path to Well-Being in Law Podcast

EPISODE 4: DAVID JAFFE

In episode 4 of the new podcast, co-hosts Chris and Bree enjoy a lively conversation with lawyer well-being pioneer, David Jaffe. David discusses the research study he co-authored regarding law students and how that data has informed significant shifts in how law schools are addressing the well-being of their students.

David Jaffe is Associate Dean of Student Affairs at American University, Washington College of Law. He is co-author of the 2016 national law student study, Suffering in Silence, and a number of other publications on law student well-being. He serves on the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (CoLAP) as co-chair of the Law School Assistance Committee, and in 2015, he received the CoLAP Meritorious Service Award in recognition of his commitment to improving the lives of law students.
