Mindfulness for Lawyers (1.5 credits in Law Practice Management)
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations,
and the surrounding environment. It is also a set of techniques and methods for systematically developing this
awareness. The practice of mindful awareness has a variety of well-documented impacts for legal professionals,
including a reduction in toxic stress hormones, an increase in emotion regulation, and an improvement in
sustained attention, focus and executive functioning. Thus, the practice of being more mindful improves your
overall experience as an attorney, you are happier at your job AND you are more productive and effective.
The central objective of the course is for participants to learn the tools necessary to continue their
mindfulness practice after the course is completed. Handouts will be provided after the course. This is an
experiential course, so you will be both learning the techniques and applying them. There will be some
movement as well, so please wear comfortable clothing.
