Lawyers in Balance
2008 – Present: 10+ Years of Finding Your Calm
Georgetown Law’s free, 8-week co-curricular course teaches law students mindfulness practices that will help them successfully navigate law school, defuse stress, and develop as leaders and problem-solvers. Lawyers in Balance (LIB) prepares law students to thrive, even in the stressful lifestyle that often accompanies the legal profession. In small groups led by experienced Law Center faculty and staff members, students in LIB will explore a range of mindfulness tools, such as meditation, journaling, reflective discussion, and guided imagery. The course introduces a new mindfulness technique each week and provides an opportunity to practice the technique in class. Participants will receive a toolkit of mindfulness and self-care techniques, and provide a restorative oasis in a hectic week.
