2:45 Substance Abuse and Stress for Lawyers: Mindfulness as a Competence Tool

This hour-long presentation will explore issues of substance abuse and stress among lawyers and introduce the concept of mindfulness—the practice of noticing one’s experience in the present moment—and explore its application to the competent practice of law. Participants will learn:

  • How substance abuse and depression are at crisis levels in the profession
  • The factors that can lead to mental health issues and substance abuse
  • How rules of professional responsibility include well-being components
  • Why mindfulness and well-being are crucial competence skills for lawyers
  • How mindfulness can help to mitigate implicit bias
  • How mindfulness can support competent law practice by enhancing productivity and communication skills
  • Practical tools for mitigating stress and improving well-being

The ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Program (CoLAP) report of the National Task Force on Well-Being suggests mindfulness meditation as an education topic for lawyer well-being. The Task Force concludes that well-being is a competence tool, and that mindfulness supports well-being for lawyers.
