New Online Mindfulness Community for Lawyers and Students

Are you looking for ways to reduce stress, manage anxiety, or just make sure you take a few minutes to breathe every day? Practicing mindfulness can help, and is a valuable part of maintaining wellness and finding work-life balance. A new online community is geared specifically for lawyers interested in mindful practices.

The Mindful Lawyers Community, founded by Jeena Cho and Lauren Clark Rad, offers support and connection. The “goal is to bring together like-minded lawyers who live with mindfulness, value creative practices and care about building a sustainable career with purpose and meaning.” Law students and anyone connected to the legal field are welcome to join. Membership includes unlimited access to the community via Slack, quarterly webinars hosted by experts, drop-in video chat sessions, daily writing and creativity prompts, and monthly habit sprints.

For more on mental health and well-being for law students, check out our resource guide and work-life balance board on Pinterest.
