The study and practice of the law are, without a doubt, emotionally challenging. In addition to providing students with the mental skills necessary for practice, Georgetown Law offers a non-credit course that teaches and prepares students for the stressful lifestyle that often accompanies the legal profession. Adapted from a course for graduating students at Georgetown Medical Center, Lawyers in Balance teaches important skills that are not typically addressed in the classroom but are highly useful in your coursework, the profession, and leading a balanced life as a student and lawyer. This program is jointly sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS), Campus Ministry, OPICS, Graduate Programs and CLE.
In groups of ten and led by experienced Law Center administrator-facilitators, students in LIB will learn a range of stress reducing "mind-body" techniques, including meditation, journaling, reflective discussion, guided imagery, and the like.
