ATTORNEYDr Amar Dhall B. Const Mgt and Eco, LLB (Hons), PhD

Dr Amar Dhall is a polymath, entrepreneur and educator supporting people from all walks of life to leverage their embodied emotional intelligence into sustainable high-performance across both personal and professional domains of life. After graduating from law with honours (magna cum laude) he completed his PhD exploring the intersection of quantum mechanics and law while teaching law at an Australian university (Canberra University) for almost a decade. During his time on faculty he had a particular interest in administrative law, legal philosophy and research. After completing his doctorate, he undertook a short stint in private practice (which ended after he politely declined an offer for partnership) he realised that his fulfilment would about by supporting others in a different way than through legal practice. This led him to become a clinical therapist, coach and facilitator who specialises in enlivening the full potential of his already high-performing clients. He has published and presented on a wide variety of subjects and is currently the director of a number of businesses bringing emotionally intelligent approaches to eudaimonia to his clients – wherever they may be. He has worked with people from all walks of life, from judges, barristers and solicitors to entrepreneurs and executives in industries as diverse as aviation, food and beverage, construction and the community sectors. Amar also holds international, national and local leadership positions with the Mankind Project, which an international network of not for profit organisations supporting men to become self-aware and embody their growth.

ABOUT TLCDefining success together

TLC began as a response to the unsustainable practice of law we see everywhere around the globe. Research demonstrates significant levels of stress, burnout, and even clinical diagnoses like Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression… just from practicing law! 

Our goal is to create safe, healing places for lawyers to go where we can all work towards our own personal and professional excellence while maintaining (and even increasing) our well-being. Being ‘in the practice’ can be exciting, intellectually challenging, fun, and incredibly rewarding emotionally and financially. Here at TLC, we strive to help you reach this sweet spot because we know the richness and fulfillment that comes from practicing meaningfully™. And- even though we don’t know you yet, we love you! We love how hard you work and how conscientious you are, how much you care about your clients and your colleagues, and how you juggle being in the practice with everything else that makes you, you. So, we want to support you in all of your personal and professional growth endeavors. Welcome to The Lawyers’ Center.
