Stephanie Villinski, Deputy Director of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism, has released her take on improving lawyer well-being, based on ‘The Future Is Now: Legal Services conference’, which is the Commission on Professionalism’s annual future law event.
Ms. Villinski reflects on the fact that many of the changes that can have the greatest impact are in fact simple and easily implementable. With not all changes requiring a major change.
Her recommendations include:
- Improving practitioner awareness around legal assistance programmes
- creating clear KPIs and success measure
- creating cultural shifts, and
- encouraging professionals to lead by example
