At Chase Law, we know that law school can be stressful and that your overall well-being must be a priority. In fact, we recognize there are at least eight interconnected dimensions of wellness and that with attention to all eight areas, you will be able to create a healthier life even with the challenges that may come your way as you take your journey through law school and in the legal profession.
There are many resources and departments, both on- and off-campus, designed to give you the guidance and support you need in all eight wellness dimensions and beyond.
