EVENT DETAIL

Mindfulness Meditation in Law Practice
Thursday, September 18, 2008 7-9 pm

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
Mindfulness meditation is being taught as a cutting-edge tool at bar association meetings and in law firms and law schools all over the country to help lawyers enhance their legal competencies. This secular practice has been scientifically shown to decrease stress and increase mental focus, and can assist lawyers in negotiating with adversaries, communicating with clients, and dealing with internal law firm politics and economic pressures. In this short course we will learn how to meditate, and how to begin to apply the insights derived from meditation practice in our professional life. There will be periods of meditation instruction, lectures, and discussion.
