What is the Lawyer Assistance Program?
The Lawyer Assistance Program (LAP) is a confidential program (see below for more information about confidentiality) that provides a supportive structure for building a personal program of recovery from mental health issues and/or problematic substance use. The program also monitors a participant's progress, not only for the public safety, but also as documentation of recovery for the professional participant. Law students, State Bar applicants, and attorneys (both current and former) are eligible for the LAP.
