LawyerVacay1USEPracticing law can be stressful, so it’s important to take time to decompress.

Heavy workloads and client stories can take a toll on lawyers both physically and psychologically. That’s why we recently started a monthly work-life column in the Texas Bar Journal highlighting ways attorneys and firms are finding time to de-stress from the pressures of the job.

In that spirit, we are launching a new photo contest. With summer upon us, we want to see how you’re taking a break from the law and recharging this season—whether it’s a serene day on the beach, an evening curled up with a good book, an active afternoon on the lake, or a fun barbecue with the family.

Share your vacation photos with the State Bar of Texas (@statebaroftexas) via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the hashtag #lawyervacay. You can also email them to

Some of our favorite snapshots will be featured on the Texas Bar Blog and our social media accounts.

Now, hurry up and relax—we can’t wait to see how you’re striking a healthy work-life balance!
