THREE THINGS TO KNOW FOR JULY

  • Study Finds Mindfulness Helps 1Ls with Stress, Focus, Well-Being

Richard Reuben and Ken Sheldon have published an article in the Southwestern Law Review on the first empirical study of possible beneficial effects of mindfulness in the legal profession.

The study focused on first year students, and among other things, found that 1Ls who took an eight-week mindfulness training in the period leading to their fall exams were less stressed, more focused, and happier at the end of the study, heading into exams, than they were when they began the training in the middle of the semester.

  • MILS CLE Now Available

MILS now offers on-demand CLE on mindfulness, yoga, and related topics. MILS members get a discount on the regular $50/video rate, and new MILS members get one hour free for joining.

All programs have been approved for CLE ethics and substance abuse credit in Illinois and states that have CLE reciprocity with Illinois. Lawyers in other states will have to petition for credit and MILS can help with that.

We are also seeking content for our CLE catalog. Those interested should contact Lee Holcomb .

  • BarBri Partners with MILS to Offer Mindful Mondays to Bar Students

BarBri is partnering with MILS to bring Mindful Mondays to students studying for the bar. As we all know, this is a very stressful time for most law students. We encourage you to share information about the program to anyone you know who is studying for the bar.
