Lawyers Assistance Committee

The Akron Bar Association Lawyers Assistance Committee provides education and confidential assistance to lawyers, judges, and law school students who are affected by the problems of alcohol or substance abuse, stress, depression, or other mental health issues. Consistent with the mission of the Bar Association, our goal is to assist in the prevention and early identification of problems that can affect professional conduct and quality of life. Our intent is to provide intervention before the problems become overwhelming.
