Judges & Lawyers Assistance Program > About > JLAP Committee JLAP Committee

Purpose

JLAP offers help to judges, attorneys, and law students who experience physical or mental disabilities that result from disease, chemical dependency, mental health problems, or age, which may impair these individuals' ability to practice in a competent and professional manner. Help varies with an individual's needs or a particular case, but ranges from information and referral to assistance with organization of an intervention. In addition, JLAP provides education to the bench and bar on relevant issues. The purpose of this committee is to guide the development of JLAP programs and initiatives.
