Kentucky Lawyer Assistance Program

Kentucky Supreme Court Rules 3.900 through 3.995 establish and implement the Kentucky Lawyer Assistance Program (KYLAP).  KYLAP is a broad-brush program involving assistance for impairment that may result from addiction to intoxication or drugs, chemical dependency, substance abuse, mental disease, mental disorder or defect, psychological or emotional illness that impairs, or may foreseeably impair, a person’s ability to practice law or serve on the bench. Services are available for law students, lawyers and judges.

The mission and purpose of KYLAP is to address impairment or potential impairment issues within the Kentucky legal community and to offer confidential assistance to those who are affected in a manner that serves to help insure a continuing high standard of professional competence.

Strict confidentiality is assured by SCR 3.990.  

Contact us 24 hours a day at (502) 226-9373 to get help for any Kentucky lawyer in need.


Pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 3.990, all communication with KYLAP is confidential.
