    Stress abounds in the profession. In 2017, a national task force on lawyer well-being concluded that students and lawyers are increasingly at risk, and our response as a profession falls short. What is our response? Bhutan develops and evaluates its national policies through the lens of a Gross National Happiness Index, which focuses on psychological well-being, health, education, time use, and other domains. This panel will explore the idea of an equivalent index for law schools and approach the topic from a global perspective (e.g., curricular design, course development, exercises, teaching techniques, extra-curricular activities, etc.).
