MEETINGS & EVENTS

In an effort to achieve it’s mission, FLA, through its over 300 volunteer legal professionals, has promoted the formation of over 30 weekly support groups throughout Florida for lawyers, judges, and law students. Some of these groups focus on substance abuse issues and are attended by legal professionals in recovery or who wish to learn more about the recovery process. Other groups assist legal professionals dealing with mental health issues or dual disorders. The groups meet at a designated location each week for approximately one hour. 

  • FLA Lawyer/Law Student Support Group Meetings

  • FLA Facilitated Group Meetings (Mental/Health Dual Disorder)

FLA is dedicated to being a valued resource to the Florida legal community and will be there throughout and after this difficult time.  Stay safe.

 

Dr. Scott Weinstein, FLA's Clinical Director, invites all lawyers to join a support group every Wednesday from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Topic: How the Covid-19 Pandemic has Impacted the Florida Legal Community

CAREER COUNSELING

 

FLA’s online career counseling program, facilitated by David Behrend, M.Ed., is now in its fourth year. The meeting is hosted on GoToMeeting.com on the second Wednesday of each month, and is open to the first 25 people to log in. The meeting continues to expand, with a number of Florida lawyers attending from out-of-state, and many participants following up with Mr. Behrend individually. The online meeting continues to provide a valuable, free service for attorneys who are looking for a job, dissatisfied with their current situation, or thinking of leaving the law altogether.
