Mindfulness is increasingly being recognized by scientific research, and in the professional world, as a valuable practice for cultivating a range of physical, cognitive, and emotional benefits including calm, focus, good health, and emotional resilience. And lately, a growing number of lawyers and legal educators have been applying these practices in law contexts to improve the effectiveness and wellbeing of law professionals. Berkeley Law has taken a leading role in creating mindfulness-00ad‐based programs and courses for law students and lawyers, through the Berkeley Initiative for Mindfulness in Law.

In this free afternoon presentation, Charlie Halpern, Director of the Berkeley Initiative for Mindfulness in Law, will train participants in a set of simple mindfulness practices that they can apply to make their work and personal lives more balanced, focused, and sustainable, and increase their effectiveness as supervisors. No prior experience with meditation or contemplative practices is necessary.
