Rosario Lozada Promotes the ABA Well-Being Pledge

Rosario Lozada (’97), Professor of Legal Skills and Values and Director of Well-Being in Law at Florida International University College of Law, was quoted by discussing the importance of well-being practices as a component of legal education, noting the ABA’s curricular standard requiring law schools to provide substantial opportunities for students in developing professional identity (“‘There Are Long-Term Consequences’: Why Improving Mental Health in the Legal Profession Must Begin in Law School,” Apr. 18). “Law students and lawyers who attend (and recommit time and again) to their well-being are more likely to make ethical and value-aligned decisions, as well as perform better in law school and in practice. Increasingly, stake holders are recognizing that well-being is tied to a lawyer’s duty of competence.”
