Newly admitted New York attorneys (attorneys admitted to the New York State Bar for two years or less) cannot earn CLE credit in the category of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias.

Join the City Bar’s newest committee, the Mindfulness and Well-Being in the Law Committee, to discuss how you can improve your practice, reduce your bias, enlarge your community, be more self-compassionate, and serve more competently through mindfulness and well-being tools.

This program will discuss how mindfulness and well-being practices are paramount to adhering to our ethical obligations as members of the Bar. Participants will learn how to improve their emotional intelligence, become more inclusive, and cultivate more happiness and gratitude.

Specifically, the goals of the CLE are the following:

  • To explain the findings of research on well-being and competence
  • To explore how mindfulness is essential to ethical competence and decision making including developing a Philosophy of Legal Practice
  • To impart tools for lawyer to use to enhance their well-being such as meditation techniques, self-compassion resources, gratitude practices and other methods to enhance attorney well-being
