I have written about the notion of "wellness" before, including about a report on the negative effects of the practice of law and the fact that Vermont has adopted a comment  to its rule on competence which states that maintaining mental, emotional, and physical well-being necessary for practice is important aspect of competence.
Today I want to let you know that, earlier this month, the Supreme Court of Utah approved an amendment to the comments of Rule 1.1 of its Rules of Professional Conduct to add language about the mental, physical, and emotional health of attorneys. Here is the language of the new paragraph in the comment:
 Lawyers should be aware that their mental, emotional, and physical well-being may impact their ability to represent clients and, as such, is an important aspect of maintaining competence to practice law and compliance with the standards of professionalism and civility. Resources supporting lawyer well-being are available through the Utah State Bar.
