Join peers in LCL MA Open Connection — a Free & Confidential support group for lawyers, law students, and judges in Massachusetts to connect online and discuss what’s on your mind during these uniquely challenging times as a lawyer. While not limited to anxiety and stress related to the COVID-19 outbreak, we expect it to be a primary discussion topic. The most likely format is that we’ll go around one by one, with the capacity for people to comment on what others have said, with one of our licensed therapists as the facilitator, and will attempt to give everyone a chance to speak.

  • This is a support and discussion group, and not a therapy group.
  • Participation will require both video and audio.  If doing it from a smartphone, the phone needs to be positioned in a stable way.
  • It is not a group for talking about legal case strategies. It’s for discussing thoughts, feelings, coping, adapting.

Weekly meetings will take place via Zoom, on MONDAYS at 11AM. You’ll receive access information in your registration confirmation.

This group is currently scheduled to run through June. Depending on interest, it may be extended.
