The Wellness Doctrines: For Law Students & Young Lawyers

Jerome Doraisamy
Free sample

At least one in three legal professionals suffers from depression.

A litigious culture, extreme hours and relentless pressure – both internal and external – can all take their toll. Young lawyer Jerome Doraisamy learnt the hard way how pushing yourself to the physical and emotional limit can wreak havoc on your mental health and wellbeing.

Over an 18-month period starting from late 2011, including one period of hospitalisation, he suffered from severe clinical depression. His first book, The Wellness Doctrines, addresses the crisis in the profession head-on, offering practical tools and guidance for young legal professionals via insightful case studies from academics, managing partners, senior solicitors, graduates and students.

Showcasing a “by lawyers, for lawyers” approach, this book provides the inspiration a young legal professional needs to take charge of his or her health and wellbeing.
