Law Teacher Survey

21st April 2017

Dear Law Teacher

Two years ago we were awarded a small research grant by the Legal Education Research Network to investigate how Law Teachers understand and maintain their wellbeing as well as that of their students.  We are now  undertaking a further survey in order to investigate stress and some of the trends we found in that first survey and in order to develop an intervention.

We need your help once again to do this.  It is only through the collection of data can we begin to formulate strategies to support academics (and students) in building personal resilience. The survey is mainly asking you to tick items, it is entirely confidential and you can skip any questions if you like. It will take around 20 minutes. It has been ethically approved by the University of Portsmouth. We would be most grateful to have your time and support in completing the survey here:

If you would like to receive a copy of our report to LERN on the first survey please email

Best wishes
