About Wellbeing

Healthy wellbeing has many positive effects on students:

  • Better academic performance and cognitive functioning
  • Enhanced test performance
  • Improved study habits and homework quality
  • Long-term academic success

Wellbeing is defined as:

  • leading healthy and balanced lives in a demanding profession (Canadian Bar Association).
  • people achieving their full potential in teaching, learning, working, and research. It is foundational to success as individuals, as a university, and as a community (UBC).
  • law students balancing and developing IQ and EQ to promote an integrated student who actualizes academic, social, emotional and behavioural skills to develop their own personal and professional growth (Allard School of Law).
