Communication is fundamental to effective representation. But how effective are our methods of interacting with clients, and even opposing counsel, other trial-team members, the court, and staff? Many times, the stress of legal practice can cause a breakdown in communication or lead to other problems, such as substance abuse, that threaten successful communications. Mindfulness practices can be another tool in the arsenal to address these problems and help achieve efficient, empathetic, effective communication. Whether you are a veteran meditator and mindfulness practitioner or you’re asking, “What is mindfulness,” this session offers new insight into the classic issues that can impair a member’s ability to practice and discusses strategies to improve client communications and the ability to practice law with competence.
