Studies show that mindfulness can help people be healthier, happier, more positive, and more productive.  Whether you are a long-time mindfulness practitioner or simply want to learn about all the buzz is about, the Chicago Bar Association’s Mindfulness and Wellness Committees invite you to join us for a mindfulness workshop that will feature prominent mindfulness in the law scholars, attorneys from various segments of the profession discussing how mindfulness helps their practice. 

Plenary Session
An Introduction to Mindfulness for Lawyers: This talk will cover what mindfulness means, its relevance for practicing lawyers and judges, and some of the science behind why it can be helpful in managing stress, enhancing well-being, and increasing focus.  It will also present the findings of the first published empirical study of mindfulness effects for law students.
