Welcome to the survey!

Thank you for taking the time to add your views and experiences to a topic that deserves much more attention!

We are glad that we can conduct this important element of research, also thanks to the support of our project partners BUJ e.V. and EuPD Research.


The aim of this survey is to prove whether lawyers suffer from mental health problems (e.g. stress, tinnitus, sleeplessness, anxiety, depression, burn-out) to a greater extent than other professions, as has already been shown in several empirical studies since the 1990s until today:

  • National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being (2017), "Creating a Movement To Improve Well-Being in the Legal Profession"
  • American Bar Association (2016), "The Prevalence of Substance Use and Other Mental Health Concerns Among American Attorneys"
  • Johns Hopkins University (1990), "Occupations and the Prevalence of Major Depressive Disorder"


According to the empirical evidence, this survey is divided into: The 6 "R"

  • Relevance
  • Reasons
  • Ramifications
  • Resolutions
  • Reference
  • Reality

The first four parts ("Rs") are concerned with assessing statements on A) Relevance, (B) Reasons, (C) Ramifications and (D) Resolutions on mental health reduction among lawyers. Part (E) Reference relates to you as the respondent, while (F) Reality deals with specific measures that may or may not have been implemented in your personal work environment.
