Your Input is Critical
“Attorney well-being has been an area of well-deserved focus across the country over the last several years. Many state bars have established committees to develop well-being programs or resources and Idaho’s Task Force looks forward to using the results of the survey to inform its work.
Your response to our survey is critically important and valuable. Attorney well-being is a topic we can all benefit from and the survey is a simple way to help your fellow bar members. The Task Force appreciates your attention and time to respond.”
~ Donald F. Carey, Idaho State Bar President

Attorney Well-Being is More Important Now Than Ever
“This survey’s timing is serendipitous because attorney well-being is an especially important issue, and, now so, more than ever. Please take a few minutes (along with a couple of deep breaths), and share your answers to help shape the direction, programs, and resources being developed to address an often-overlooked aspect of practice. With your insight, improvements can happen. Thank you!.”
~ Hon. Andrea L. Courtney, Third District Judge

Election Law Symposium – Oct. 27


Although free and fair elections might now be considered a hallmark of our representative democracy, ensuring that all citizens can participate equally in our elections is an ongoing effort. It was not until 1870 that the 15th Amendment prohibited disenfranchisement on the basis of race. And it took 50 more years before the 19th Amendment prohibited the same on the basis of sex. In the 1960s, the Supreme Court established the one-person-one-vote principle, and Congress enacted the Voting Rights Act. On the eve of the 2020 election, we examine American democracy and ask: Where are we now, nd where might we be 4 years, 20 years, 50 years, 100 years, or even 150 years from now?
