Mental Health and Wellbeing:

Interviews:

In this section you will find our conversations with real people: lawyers, academics, business men and women, and plenty more. We ask them about their experiences with mental illness, how they chose the path they did coming from a law degree, and their opinions on pertinent issues in the law. Each interviewee comes from their own walk of life and brings a wonderful, new perspective on the problems we all face as humans.
