Mindfulness In Law
The Mindfulness In Law Group was created to serve as a resource for law professionals (and others working in the legal industry) to both learn and deepen mindfulness practice and to promote wellbeing and mindfulness education in the profession,supporting and advocating for best practice within the field.
LawCare has supported the Mindfulness In Law Group since it launched in 2018 and, in 2021, the two organisations started working together on a closer basis to support and promote their mutual aims.
The Mindfulness In Law Group holds regular mindfulness events for those working in the legal profession, introducing mindfulness to those who are looking for an opportunity to try it first-hand, as well as creating a space for those who are already familiar with benefits of mindfulness and want to continue their practice.
The Mindfulness in Law Group meets on the second Tuesday of each month (starting up again in June 2023). These are 45 minute long lunchtime sessions on Zoom from 12.30 to 1.15pm. The current series is call 'Mindfulness and me' and they have a number of speakers confirmed for each of the sessions.
