Mindfulness is a practice that involves bringing awareness to the processes of the mind in the present moment without judgement. Stress from the rigors of law school and from daily life can be debilitating, and learning to be less reactive to anxious or ruminative thoughts can help reduce the effects of mental health disorders and general tension. This section offers books, articles, and websites arguing the efficacy of mindfulness in stress reduction, especially within the context of legal practice and school. It also shares resources designed to introduce students to mindfulness practice and resources meant to foster continued engagement for those interested.
