Gambling - The Secret Addiction in the Legal World

December 3

Explore gambling disorders along with the more well-known forms of impairment.

Recent studies have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, drug addiction, and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession. The statistics are compelling and indicate that 1 out of 3 attorneys will likely have a need for substance use or mental health services at some point in their careers. What about that other addiction – gambling?

In 2018, the United States Supreme Court, in Murphy vs. NCAA, held that sports gambling was legal in all of the United States. By 2020, 22 states had added online gambling accessible by cell phone, computer, and tablets. With it came the compulsive gambler.

This topic will explore not only gambling disorders but also the connection between gambling and the more well-known forms of impairment and why lawyers are at higher risk to develop problems. This problem has only been exacerbated by the stress, anxiety, and isolation caused by the coronavirus crisis. The results are startling.
