Abstract

A survey revealed that law students have the highest proportion of depressive illness amongst university students and that lawyers have the highest proportion of depression amongst other professions. Depression in law students may be at least partially explained by their attitudes to learning and university education. It is possible to prepare strategies that will make law students more resilient.
