In February 2019 we conducted our third annual global study of more than 10,000 Acritas Stars. The aim was to understand what makes these individuals stand out lawyers to clients and what their law firms do that either encourages this or gets in the way.
Through working closely with law firms and individuals at different levels of their career in the legal profession, Acritas has recognized that mental health and overall wellbeing are critically important issues in this demanding, often high-pressured environment. We are passionate to understand more about how individuals and firms can best manage the pressures faced in the legal profession.
Therefore, for our survey launching in September 2019, Acritas have come together with Robert Cross, Edward A Madden Professor of Global Leadership at Babson College to explore health and wellbeing amongst our Acritas Star Lawyer community.
The key objectives of this piece of research will:
- Which aspects of a lawyers’ working life typically increase or decrease stress levels
- What are the most effective strategies which law firms and individuals can employ to ensure partners and their teams thrive in high pressure environments
In return for participating, Acritas Star lawyers will receive an executive overall summary report of the key survey findings combined with a summary of their own responses with interpretive commentary on completion of the analysis in November 2019.
