About Us

Who We Are

A Reasonable Standard is a publication focused on honest and transparent stories from law students and legal professionals about the mental health issues they face.

We provide an unfiltered perspective into our peers' lives and ultimately aim to break the stigma around mental illness.

We also connect students to the right support services & resources they need to help them take actionable steps forward.
