Course Description

Practicing attorneys tend to suffer from mental health symptoms and disorders at a higher rate than society at large. The pressures and dynamics of this profession can be and often are intense. In this course we look at mindfulness practice as a proven solution to deal with these challenges. We look at mental health and mindfulness through the lens of their underlying neurological correlates and explore how mindfulness is an evidenced-based solution. We close the course with practical considerations in applying mindfulness principles to law practice.
