Survey into Happiness, Resilience and Stress in the Legal Profession

Steven Clarke, a student at Nottingham Trent University College of Business, Law and Social Sciences working towards a masters degree in Legal Practice, is conducting research into the attitude towards happiness, resilience and stressors in the work place as experienced by lawyers.

LawCare is supporting Steven in this research, and we would be grateful if you could spare some time to complete the survey. The survey asks for a little background about participants and their route to legal practice. Thereafter it asks for responses to a number of issues by reference to a scale of responses.

This survey should take no more than 30 minutes of your time to complete. Thank you very much for taking part.

The London Legal Walk 2016

On Monday 16th May a team of 20 walkers from LawCare took part in the annual London Legal Walk.

This 10km walk around central London was to raise money for legal advice charities in the south east, providing access to justice for the most vulnerable in society. As a charity LawCare is also able to keep half the money raised.

The sun shone and all LawCare's walkers completed the event, accompanied for some of the route by our good friends from SBA The Solicitors Charity.

LawCare's efforts have raised over £4,000 but there's still time to sponsor us. Please sponsor us by clicking on this link.
