Why "Beyond the A"?


Anxiety is something that is prominent in the legal profession but is often swept under the rug. The status quo is stay heads down, pretend it doesn’t exist or resort to drugs or alcohol to numb the pain.

This approach is clearly not working. There has been a drastic rise in employee burnout, alcohol and drug abuse and depression. And if we were to maintain this status quo, things are simply going to get worse.

Something needs to change. There is where Beyond the A comes in.

While we do not purport to be experts, our vision to serve as the modern platform to connect students and lawyers with tools and resources to excel in their careers and beyond.
