Course Description

Gambling disorder has only recently been recognized by the DSM-V as an addictive disorder. This addiction has a high co-morbidity rate as well as the highest rate of suicidal ideation among all types of addiction. These issues have only exacerbated during the rise of legal gambling in the U.S. and the Covid-19 pandemic. This addiction can be especially problematic for lawyers, who already suffer disproportionate rates of mental and addictive disorders. This program will dive into gambling addiction, including its warning signs, risks, co-morbidities, related ethical issues, and the toll it can take on the legal profession.
