We are KALAP

It is estimated that anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 lawyers licensed by the State of Kansas suffer from physical or mental illness impairing their professional abilities. This results in a substantial impact on clients and the disciplinary system. The Kansas Lawyers Assistance Program (KALAP) was created by the Kansas Supreme Court to provide assistance to Kansas lawyer whose professional performance is impaired because of physical or mental illness, including alcoholism and substance abuse, so these attorneys may resume or enter the competent practice of law.
