In the first term of the 2016/17 Law Year, to coincide with World Mental Health day, and as a direct response to member feedback, The Bar of Ireland ran a comprehensive programme of Wellness for its members. Their Vice-Chairman Seamus Woulfe SC opened the event with LawCare Coordinator for Ireland Mary Jackson.
The programme comprised a wide range of talks and workshops, including pilates, meditation, health checks and mental well-being, mindful eating, financial planning, exercise, general fitness, raising emotional intelligence and work/life balance. This launched the initiative to place member wellbeing at the forefront of The Bar of Ireland agenda for 2016/17.
A wellness committee has been established, and the hope is to run a wellness event every term and to eventually create a dedicated wellness section on their www.lawlibrary.ie website.
They also hope to integrate health and wellness in all their CPD workshops, in recognition of the close relationship between wellbeing and a more engaged membership, and with the aim to continue to raise awareness and develop support for their members.
