Lawyers in Balance
2008 - Present
Ten 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.
Fall 2020 Application and Schedule
LIB seminars meet once a week for eight weeks, beginning the week of September 28.
The Fall 2020 LIB Application will be available in early September. In the application, you will be asked for a paragraph explaining your interest in the LIB seminar, and you will rank your choice(s) of seminar times. LIB group and course time assignments will be announced in late September.
