Lawyers position themselves on the front lines of personal, moral, ethical and cultural battles, and right now, on the legal front lines of the pandemic. We work in the midst of conflict and hostility. We signed up for that and we’re good at it. Some might say we excel on the battleground. And yet, being a truly effective advocate requires that we remain passionate without becoming combative and we protect our own wellbeing and not succumb to feeling overwhelmed or embattled. In fact we have an ethical obligation to do this, not only for the sake of our own wellbeing but also to protect the wellbeing of our clients, communities, and society, especially during COVID-19.
This program will explore:
1. How to better understand the legal mind.
2. How to cultivate intentional states of mind, and choose which states of mind to use, for greater effectiveness and wellbeing.
3. The role of mindfulness meditation in the understanding and cultivation of the mind.
