Description:

AM session:  How Mindfulness Can Help You Avoid Legal Burnout, Continue to Competently Perform Legal Services, and Remain Ethically Compliant

As attorneys, chronic stress is often a part of our job. If we do not effectively manage chronic stress, however, it has the potential to cripple our productivity levels. Chronic stress can also make it physically, mentally, and emotionally impossible to advocate for our clients and communicate with them effectively and competently. Further, we run the risk of violating the rules of professional conduct, such as Rules 1.1, 1.3, and 1.4, which we will discuss during this webinar.

Instituting even one or two minutes of meditation and mindfulness into our daily routines can have immediate and far-reaching benefits in our professional and personal lives. Become your best self now. Join us as we demystify meditation and focus on the basics of mindfulness: what it is and is not, how to do it, and how to maximize its benefits.

We will delve into specific methods of integrating mindfulness into your day-to-day law practice.  According to Professor Peter H. Huang of University of Colorado Law School, “Law students, lawyers, and law professors should try practicing mindfulness to see if they improve their legal decision-making, ethics and leadership.” 

 

This CLE session will empower you to:

       ·     Protect yourself from burnout

·     Improve focus and boost your overall productivity and efficiency

·     Curb anxiety and stress through quick, effective “spot treatments”

·     Use mindfulness to enhance ethical and reflective decision-making as opposed to acting rashly and later feeling regret for poorly chosen words and actions
