Stress and Resilience in the US Judiciary

A comprehensive report released in the 2020 Journal of The Professional Lawyer which surveyed more than 1,000 judges across the United States suggests job stress has become a serious health concern in the state judicial ranks, with about one-third or more reporting fatigue and low energy, sleep disturbance or disturbed attention and concentration. The survey was carried out before the pandemic.

Interestingly, for stress relief, mindfulness was endorsed as a current activity by 36% of responders, although 81% of the judges were interested in it. The report concluded that this "suggests that the 45% gap may reflect a potential for further training in this highly effective resiliency skill."
