Mindfulness and the Practice of Law

Learn about the importance of mindfulness and meditation for lawyers, and how these tools can help lawyers comply with their ethical obligations and become better practitioners.

Taking care of your mental health as a lawyer

Lawyer mental health matters—especially in times of extreme and rapid change. However, legal professionals often work in high-stress environments that leave little room for mindfulness and meditation.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • The ethical obligations around attorney well-being and mental health
  • The neuroscience behind mindfulness and meditation
  • Simple practices for letting go of stress and returning to homeostasis
  • How self-compassion and self-care can help you in law practice
  • Experiential learning through guided meditation practice
