Lawyer Assistance Program

For Law Students

The Students in Recovery listserv, developed by the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (CoLAP), provides a confidential e-mail vehicle for law students who want to get, or stay, clean and sober while in law school. This is a chance for students to connect with and ask questions of their law student peers throughout the US and share their experience, strength and hope. If you wish to be added to the listserv, interested law students should contact the D.C. Bar LAP, directly at lap@dcbar.org. Students should be prepared to talk a bit about their history and about their need and desire to communicate with other law students facing similar challenges. LAP staff will make the final determination to add the student to the Listserv and will provide each student with the rules and regulations regarding use of the "Students in Recovery Listserv." When a student graduates and is admitted to the bar, he/she will be removed from the Listserv. This service is confidential.
