The Mindful Law Office: Strategies for Reducing Attorney Stress and Improving Productivity

Mindfulness is a hot topic in the legal profession, and much has been said about its effectiveness in reducing stress and improving productivity. As mindfulness becomes more familiar, it is time to shift the conversation from “why?” to “how?” This workshop will begin with the scientific evidence for the benefits of mindfulness, but it will focus on hands-on implementation. Attendees will learn basic mindfulness practices they can share with their attorneys. Of equal importance, they will learn strategies for creating a supportive space for these practices and helping attorneys integrate mindfulness into their workday.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the value of mindfulness with concrete scientific evidence.

  • Identify ways to share with their attorney’s basic mindfulness practices suitable for a variety of issues attorneys commonly face.

  • Develop strategies and structures for supporting lawyers who wish to integrate mindfulness into their work.

Jon Krop is a lawyer, mindfulness teacher and founder of Mindfulness for Lawyers. He has taught mindfulness to partners and associates at Chadbourne & Parke, Dentons, DLA Piper, Finnegan Henderson, Foley Hoag, Foley & Lardner, Nixon Peabody, Sidley Austin, and Sullivan & Cromwell. Krop teaches a mindfulness workshop every semester at Harvard Law School. He has also taught at Brooklyn Law School, GW Law, New York University and General Electric.
