Maintaining Mental Health At Law School

Above The Law, a legal blog, recently published a fairly disheartening article analyzing a Yale survey study depression and poor mental health in law school. I first read the article shortly after attending a lecture where the speaker told us that February 1 of a student’s first year is, statistically, the most depressing day in law school. With that backdrop in mind, I, as a first year student in the midst of the (objectively) unhappiest period of law school, have some thoughts on the article.

I wish I could tell you I’m surprised by the findings discussed at Above the Law. But I’m not.
