The Mindful Lawyer

first_img The practice of law carries with it a range of uncertainties, with perhaps the most salient being whether the client will prevail. While different practice areas carry different expectations in this regard, it can be difficult for anyone to absorb a loss, especially given how deeply one cares about their client, their client’s cause, their own reputation, or the financial consequences associated with a loss. When one’s practice area is beset with adverse rulings or one experiences an unexpected string of losses, it can take a serious toll on wellbeing and compromise performance and job satisfaction.In this column, we often respond to questions raised by attorneys and judges interested in the role mindfulness can play in areas of interest to them, personally and professionally. This month, we hear from Alexis, a law student who has begun to embark on client representation in the clinic setting. Law school clinics play an enormously important role in educating future lawyers and helping serve the needs of our communities. The work taken on by the clinics and their expert faculty who supervise talented, passionate, and caring law students can be stressful with heavy workloads, emotionally charged contexts, and uncertain outcomes. Increasingly, clinical faculty are introducing mindfulness into the curriculum to attend to matters ranging from focus and concentration, to the interplay of judgment, bias, and empathy, to stress reduction and concerns with secondary trauma and compassion fatigue.Alexis writes:“Much of the work I am interested in involves representing clients for whom a denial of the relief requested is a common occurrence. How might mindfulness help sustain my ability to do this work long-term. I worry about becoming jaded which could affect me and my work with future clients.” I posed Alexis’ question to Lenny Simmons, senior staff attorney and mindfulness teacher with Mental Hygiene Legal Service (MHLS), a New York State agency responsible for representing, advocating and litigating on behalf of individuals receiving services for a mental disability. He replies:Thank you for raising such an important question. As attorneys, we may like to think of ourselves as steadfast advocates who can summon the intelligence and creativity necessary to win our crucial cases, especially when justice seems to be on our client’s side. However, certain attorneys practice in areas where the odds are against us, and losing becomes a frequent experience even in our most important cases. This can be difficult in many ways. First, we are regularly presented with our client’s grief and sadness when their requested relief is denied. Second, our minds may begin to perceive these situations in terms of our own failures or unworthiness. Third, our stamina and motivation may become drained over time by the losses, leading to hopelessness. Mindfulness offers helpful tools to bring us back to the present moment and see our situation more clearly. A short meditation on the breath before a hearing or trial can help to focus the mind on our work and bring us out of patterns of thought which ruminate on worst-case outcomes or past mistakes. And when our mind wanders during court, mindfulness allows us to ground ourselves in reality by bringing our attention back to our body. Tuning into our bodies can be helpful in the moment for establishing a steadier state in the midst of a challenging circumstance. Moreover, over time, it can uncover important information, revealing how much of our pain comes from empathy for our clients versus an ego bruised from losing in court yet again. These practices can also reduce the emotional blow of losing a case, as they draw us back to our actual work: the compassionate service of our clients. Meditations on loving-kindness and compassion represent another foundational piece of self-care. These practices allow us to generate compassion for our clients long after we finish representing them, meaning that there is plenty of work for us to do even after we lose a case. And these meditations give us an opportunity to care for ourselves and to notice when we need space from our work, so that we can continue our pursuits with energy and joy rather than pushing ourselves toward burnout. If you are interested in learning more about and practicing mindfulness, loving-kindness, and compassion, you can download the app, “Insight Timer” which offers a wide range of free meditations broken out by category, including some I guide that have a legal flavor. The app has numerous “groups” that orient around various interest areas, and include the “Mindfulness in Law” group. Other well-regarded apps that offer mindfulness, loving-kindness, and compassion practices include: Calm, Headspace, 10% Happier, and Waking Up.You may also find it helpful to read the October 2018 Florida Bar News column, “The Role of Self-Compassion in the Law,” with Chris Germer, one of the world’s leading authorities on mindfulness and self-compassion. And should you be interested in the important topic of finding meaning in the practice of law, I recommend reading “Practicing from the Inside Out,” an important article published in the Harvard Negotiation Law Review that powerfully addresses some of the themes raised in this month’s column.I am grateful to Lenny for his service to our profession, and for his thoughtful response to Alexis’ question. In addition to his work with MHLS, Lenny speaks on mindfulness and the practice of law to attorneys and, for the last two years, has been teaching mindfulness to law students at Brooklyn Law School. In 2018, the ABA published his piece “Not Alone: Sensitivity to Veterans’ Mental Health through Mindful Legal Representation.”If you have a question about mindfulness and integrating it into the practice of law that you would like answered in this column, send it to [email protected] Rogers, M.S., J.D., is a nationally recognized leader in the area of mindfulness in law and founded and directs the University of Miami School of Law’s Mindfulness in Law Program where he teaches mindful ethics, mindful leadership, and mindfulness in law.

5G essential to EU overall development

first_img Pearse O’Donohue, the European Commission’s director of Future Networks, stressed 5G is central to many of the commission’s economic and social development policies, and is pushing for light-touch regulation to support the rapidly rollout of 5G networks.He pointed to its Digital Single Market policy in which its Gigabit Society goals can only be successful if 5G by is rolled out in all parts of the European Union by 2025.Speaking at the GTI Summit on Tuesday, he said the regulator understands Europe requires a regulatory regime that is light, flexible and supportive of the development of 5G.The Commission is focused on a number of areas, but near the top of the list is Identifying radio spectrum required to allow 5G to be quickly tested and developed, give confidence to device makers and create a clear framework for licensing to be carried out.“Through our proposals, we are seeking to have greater coordination towards spectrum licensing to speed it up and harmonise traditional licensing so operators know exactly what their footprint can be on specific bands across the EU. We want to make it easier for 5G networks to be rolled out… we know local planning laws do cause significant delays in the deployment of new technologies,” he said.It is also pushing for global standards to be worked out, not just to drive forward ultra-fast broadband, but also complete those that identify the business use cases for industrial, social and vertical applications that drive investment in 5G and bring the benefits of the new radio technology not only to the European economy but the world economy.

Freeze put an emphasis on going faster offensively this spring

first_imgOXFORD – Next month, Hugh Freeze will be gripping the wheel of a car zooming at more than 120 mph when he serves as the pace car driver at Tallageda Superspeedway.When the news was announced earlier this spring, Ole Miss’ coach was jokingly asked what’s the fastest he’s ever driven.“Oh come on, man,” he said. “Not 120. Not that fast.”Then he paused. Then he grinned.“But I do like tempo,” Freeze said.“Tempo” was certainly a buzzword during Ole Miss’ spring camp, and not just in the context of NASCAR.Freeze was known for his up-tempo offense during his time at Arkansas State, but has slowly strayed from that fast-paced style since arriving in Oxford.“We’ve gone back to my Arkansas State days,” Freeze said after the Grove Bowl Saturday. “We’ve put an emphasis on moving with more tempo this spring.”Briefly, that was put on display during the Grove Bowl. Freeze wanted both offenses – red and blue – to work as quickly as possible in the first quarter.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

That impressed me. That’s not easy.”Contact Riley Blevins at [email protected] Follow @Riley_Blevins on Twitter.

That’s down considerably from the previous year when the Rebels averaged just a few more snaps per game. In 2013, the slightly more up-tempo offense ranked 23rd in total offense and averaged 473 yards per game. Freeze’s 2011 Arkansas State team ranked 22nd and averaged 448 yards.“I think it’s been good for us,” offensive coordinator Dan Werner said. “I think we’ve handled it well.”Werner is certainly enthused about getting back to going fast.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Neymar will head back to Barcelona sooner than planned

first_img IN SPORT.ES CEST Neymar was involved in a scrap with Bolivia’s Pedro Azoque. Referee Wilson Lamouroux booked both men and that should mean he travels back to Barcelona soon.  Neymar regresa a Barcelona Sport EN Upd. at 14:44 07/10/2016 Neymar is ready to pack his bags and head home to Barcelona from the Brazil camp. Not because of the brutal elbow smash which forced him off against Bolivia in Brazil’s 5-0 win, but because he was booked in the game and is now suspended for the next clash, against Venezuela.  Luis Enrique will be pleased, with the star then available to train in the build up to the clashes with Deportivo de la Coruna and after that, Manchester City in the Champions League. Neymar’s booking also ensures he will be able to play Messi’s Argentina in Brazil’s next game after Venezuela.last_img read more

Cricket: Shane Warne feels it is unfair to compare Sachin and Virat

Powered by Firework Australian legend Shane Warne was the latest figure to weigh in on the Sachin vs Virat debate. The leg spinner feels that it is difficult to compare eras and hence it is unfair to compare the duo.Advertisement The Indian cricket team have been blessed with some of the greatest names to ever play the game and while Sachin Tendulkar is widely regarded as the greatest of all time, Virat Kohli is inching his way towards the pinnacle.Image Courtesy: WWONHowever, Warne feels that the comparison between these two is not justified and he went on to state his reasons ranging from the evolution the game has seen to other factors, Warne said to TOI:Advertisement “Very hard to judge when someone is playing and very hard to judge eras. Think about the bowlers in the ’90s. Different surfaces that seamed. Now they’re a lot flatter. The ball swung more. So many invariables.But to think that someone was better than Brian Lara and Sachin – in those mid-’90s – against Wasim, Waqar, Curtly, Courtney, McGrath, Donald, Saqlain, Mushy, Vettori, Murali, myself. You can go on. Virat is breaking all the records, which is great but I want to wait. See, what people miss is this: You can set benchmarks, score those many centuries, an average that high, score a lot many runs. But what people are going to remember you for is the way you played the game,”Advertisement The Aussie legend heaped praise on Kohli’s character and his role in India’s success in recent times. Warne added:“He’s fantastic. I love watching him bat and I love listening to him. I am a big fan. You know what he does? He stands up for what he believes in. He speaks how he feels and he’s real. He’s emotional, a bit too emotional sometimes on the field.
