Lawyers in Balance: Mindfulness for Law Students
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.
In small groups led by experienced Law Center administrator-facilitators, students in LIB will learn a range of stress reducing "mind-body" techniques, such as meditation, journaling, reflective discussion, and guided imagery. One-hour sessions will offer a new technique each week with time to practice the technique in class.
