Lawyers are uniquely positioned to have problems. We are the only profession, outside of professional sports, where in every matter we face a smart, aggressive, well paid and highly motivated opponent whose purpose is to beat us. No one in school or practice teaches us how to deal with the conflict, stress and long hours our work brings us. Our world is also becoming faster and the demands for our time and expertise increase as quickly as chip speed. As a result, increasing numbers of American lawyers are finding themselves out of balance, unsettled and longing for something else. We lawyers not only suffer but our families, clients and the system of justice we serve also suffer. We can fix this.
