Learn mindfulness to help manage stress and increase your effectiveness in ethical practices in law. Arguably, we need some stress in order to motivate. However, stress also can shut down our nervous system such that we are not accessing our best qualities or highest cognitive functioning in order to problem solve and work effectively.

This course will teach participants:

  1. how to connect with a calm mind and body in stressful circumstances;
  2. how to access all of our deepest values when addressing ethical practice in law;
  3. how to bring our best qualities when ethics situations arise.
