Mindfulness Tools for Lawyers: Counsel, Clients and Conscience
Mindfulness training has gained prominence in recent years as an effective tool for managing professional and personal difficulties - detecting mental and/or physical issues that impair an attorney's ability to perform legal services with competence. Join us for an inspirational and thought-provoking night as we explore the potential for increasing our awareness as we practice law. Speakers will discuss how incorporating mindfulness into lawyers' professional lives helped lawyers develop winning strategies that reduce conflict between themselves and opposing counsel.
  • Essentials: Learn the science behind mindfulness and how to apply it.
  • Results: Glean practical takeaways to make your law practice more effective and less stressful.
  • Hear from the Pros: Two of the speakers are practicing attorneys with proven strategies for reducing conflict and finding common ground. One is a licensed therapist with experience counseling attorneys.
  • Group Meditation: Experience a mindfulness session.
