Guided by a faculty with backgrounds in leadership and mindfulness and their application in law and business, this interactive program will include exercises you can utilize and practice to incorporate mindfulness into your professional roles that enable you to become more effective leaders.

In this program, faculty will examine:

  • How the application of the ideals of mindfulness work in the reality of a lawyer's day-to-day practice
