This course begins with an introduction to mindfulness practices to understand how the mind works, and how to reduce stress, cultivate greater wellbeing, and create intentional, positive states of mind. It then invites you into an investigation of how to be more at choice in the ways you think, work, and communicate. Integral to this investigation is an exploration of and engagement with essential lawyering skills and core lawyering values helpful in finding happiness in the law, and in contributing to a more just, equitable, profession and society. At the conclusion of the class, you'll create a vision for your most successful, joyful, and values-based life in the law. There will be a daylong, off campus retreat on Saturday, February 17th. Attendance is required at the retreat.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
