ALSA Well Being Guide

ALSA is extremely pleased to announce the launch of the 2015 Wellbeing Guide. In light of the staggeringly high incidence of mental health problems within the legal profession, this Guide is intended to provide students with some practical, holistic and achievable ways of taking care of their health and well being. The Guide covers a range of different topics, including study tips, finding balance, fun ways to be physically active and some super easy, super delicious recipes. It aims to open up a dialogue about health issues among students, and get them to prioritise taking care of themselves.

Invaluable to any law student, from those embarking on their first year, to the seasoned alumnus returning to academia, the ALSA Wellbeing Guide is a must have! Be sure and have it by your side as you embark on the next round of assessments.

You can access the ALSA Wellbeing Guide here.
