The Sidebar e-Newsletter

We are pleased to announce the launch of our companion Sidebar Podcast. Beginning late 2021/early 2022 we will dovetail the Sidebar e-Newsletter with a Sidebar podcast.

The goal of the Sidebar is to better connect the NC LAP with our LAP volunteers, LAP clients and State Bar leaders and staff. We envision the Sidebar as a place where we can share articles and information – from lawyers’ personal stories and perspectives on the practice of law, to national mainstream news articles about the effects of stress and strategies for work-life balance. We often hear of recovery-related events around the state and include a community calendar of events. You are invited to forward Sidebar to anyone whom you think may have an interest. Anyone is invited to subscribe directly to receive it.

All subscriptions are confidential and anonymous…no one will know Sidebar is in your inbox unless you give them access to your inbox. We are also accepting article submissions from anyone who may be interested. Please see our guidelines for submission. Send your submission to the LAP Director.

We hope the Sidebar provides a small dose of inspiration to you in your day-to-day law practice, and reminds you that you are not alone with whatever frustrations you encounter in your law practice and in your life. You are not alone; in fact, you are in quite good company.
