Seminar - 2 hours. This seminar will introduce students to the practice of meditation and connect it with readings about the legal profession at three levels: (1) individual stress reduction and self-care for lawyers and law students; (2) interpersonal relations, particularly lawyer-client relations; and the role of the lawyer, including legal ethics; and (3) trends within the profession, including the “restorative justice” and “therapeutic justice” movements. Although issues of professional responsibility will be discussed, the focus will not be on the rules of professional responsibility.
Classroom Policies: This course has an attendance policy.
Final Assessment: Paper.
