Students in Recovery Listserv
The listserv is a confidential email service for law students who want to get, or stay, clean and sober while in law school. Students can connect, and share their experiences, with peers throughout the U.S.
If you wish to be added to the listserv, interested law students should contact Niki Irish, directly at email@example.com. Students should be prepared to talk a bit about their history and about their need and desire to communicate with other law students facing similar challenges. Ms. Irish will make the final determination to add the student to the Listserv and will provide each student with the rules and regulations regarding use of the "Student in Recovery Listserv". When a student graduates and is admitted to the bar, he/she will be removed from the Listserv. This service is confidential.
Are you a lawyer, law student, or judge in recovery from substance abuse or mental illness? Are you looking for a way to be of service? Call (800)343-8527 to volunteer.
