Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program
10 a.m. - 3 p.m. in Baier Hall
JLAP will be in Baier Hall meeting with students. Please make an appointment in advance by calling 317-833-0370. Tell them you’re calling to set an appointment with a counselor at the Maurer School of Law. You will be provided a date, time, and room number.
Are you feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Caregiving or grieving? Maybe you are concerned for someone else. Don’t wait; help and support are available now. When lawyers don’t care for their mental well-being, we can’t do our best for our clients, and we can’t be the person we want to be for our community and family.
All contact with JLAP is confidential under Admission and Discipline Rule 31 §9 and Rules of Professional Conduct 8.3 (c).
Reducing the Toll of Vicarious Trauma
Noon - 1 p.m. in 122 and on Zoom

This talk will give a brief overview and definition of vicarious trauma, provide warning signs of accumulating vicarious trauma, and provide some tools for mitigating its impact.
The featured speaker is Asher Waite-Jones of Indiana Legal Services.
Sponsor: National Lawyers Guild.
