REUTERS — Today’s law students are dealing with mental health challenges including anxiety and depression at a higher rate than their predecessors in 2014, a new study has found. Nearly 69% of respondents from 39 law schools surveyed in 2021 reported that they needed help for emotional or mental health problems in the past year. That’s up from 42% from the 2014 version of the same survey, according to a trio of academics whose findings are slated to appear in an upcoming edition of the University of Louisville Law Review.
