Health & Wellness at The Law School

There's no way around it--life in the law (and law school!) can be stressful.  Maintaining a healthy and well-rounded lifestyle is key to developing a successful professional career, and law school is the perfect time to develop healthy habits that can pave the way to a balanced and happy work life.  To foster the development of these healthy habits, the Office of the Dean of Students hosts Wellness programming throughout the year, which may include programs on meditation, time management, nutrition, and acupressure, as well as activities such as ice skating with a professor or jogging along the Midway with the Associate Dean for Admissions & Financial Aid.

We encourage all students to make time for healthy habits, whether that means finding time to head to the Ratner Center, take a yoga or pilates class (at Ratner, Chaturanga, or somewhere else), run along the lakemeditate at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, or just relax with friends.  Dean of Students Amy M. Gardner and Student Affairs Administrator Katie Burns are always happy to meet with students interested in wellness, and some of the Office of the Dean of Students' most popular programming has been developed based on suggestions from students. 

Here, you will find a schedule of upcoming Wellness programming at the Law School, as well as a list of Health & Wellness Resources around the campus and Chicago.  If you hear of any new programs, events, or resources that you would like to add to this site, please email Katie Burns at kburns27@uchicago.edu.

We hope that you have a healthy, happy, and well year!

The Office of the Dean of Students
