JLAP volunteers help in many different ways and we only ask you to do those things that you are comfortable doing. Volunteer activities can range from simply having lunch with a new attorney to talk about career options to helping convince another attorney or judge to seek treatment. Sometimes it will be reaching out to someone in hopes of preventing an impairment issue and other times it will be working with someone who is already severely impaired. Most importantly, unless you instruct us otherwise, we will always call you first to see whether you are comfortable becoming involved in a particular situation.
If you are interested in volunteering to help judges, lawyers, and/or law students cope with the issues that impair their daily ethical practice of the profession and the quality of their lives, please contact the JLAP office at 866.428.5527.
