Mindfulness for Lawyers at #ACS2018
Richard ReubenJames Lewis Parks Professor of Law and Journalism, University of Missouri School of Law; President and Chair, Mindfulness in Law Society
Law school and the practice of law can be stress-including even without the added strain of the current historical moment. This session introduces the basics of mindfulness practice, which, according to the Mindfulness in Law Society, "cultivates many skills and mental qualities that can be helpful to those in the legal profession, including the ability to focus and concentrate, recognize and let go of distractions, and accept oneself and others openly and compassionately."
