- 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 now offers

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.
