The preliminary Web site is now up for the October 29-31 conference on mindfulness in the law. You may sign up there to receive more registration information when it is available (which will be very soon).
The intended audience for the conference are lawyers, law students, judges, and ADR professionals.
From the site:
The Mindful Lawyer: Practices & Prospects for Law School, Bench, and Bar is a national conference that will bring together the pioneers who have been developing programs integrating meditation and contemplative practices with legal education and practice, and others in the legal profession who are interested in exploring this work.
Many law professionals have found that meditation practice has sharpened their legal skills, helped them to manage the stresses of their
challenging work, increased their empathy, and deepened their commitment to creating a more just society. The conference will offer a blend of scholarly presentation, practical experience and discussion, and recent developments in neuroscience and psychology relevant to meditation practice. We invite lawyers, law professors, judges, mediators and other dispute resolution professionals, and law students to explore the connections between law and meditation, and to learn and practice meditation.
The Mindful Lawyer conference will begin with an optional half-day meditation retreat on Friday afternoon. The conference officially convenes on Friday evening and runs through mid-afternoon on Sunday. CLE credit will be available.
