Recording: Namaste, Your Honor: Ethics and Mindfulness for Lawyers, Mar 15, 2019

Competence, diligence, and well-being are core elements of an ethical legal practice. It's well documented that attorneys frequently experience high levels of pressure, over-scheduling, and competition, both from without and within. Add in the financial unpredictability and widespread substance abuse associated with the entertainment industry, and these issues can become more extreme. A growing number of lawyers have turned to mindfulness and meditation practices to help deal with these personal, professional and ethical challenges. This panel of experts will describe and demonstrate proven techniques that lawyers can use to improve their productivity and communication skills, strengthen competence, focus, mental health and well-being, and stay on course even in the midst of rough waters. Equipment required: an open mind.
