Legal Happiness

The Duke University School of Law has recently introduced a new course with an interesting concept—how to be happy in the legal profession.  It’s called Well-Being and the Practice of Law.  Lawyers are not a notoriously happy lot, and recent economic pressures have made the situation even worse.  So what do you study to make happier lawyers?  The course includes philosophical and psychological approaches to happiness, and also a look at the legal profession itself.  Is this a good solution to depression rates among lawyers?  What are some other options?  For more look at this American Lawyer article, or the write up on the Wall Street Journal Law Blog.
