Lecture brochure 

Join us for a stimulating exploration of mindfulness, and its benefits and applications for law and mediation. The program is free and open to the public.

Mindfulness is an ancient method of deliberate, moment-to-moment attention. A person cultivates mindfulness through meditation. Mindfulness meditation helps people working in the law and dispute resolution to listen better to their clients and to themselves. By gaining distance from their own habitual reactions, individuals enable themselves to perform more effectively.

SPEAKER: LEN RISKIN
Leonard L. Riskin has been mediating, writing about mediation, and training lawyers and law students in mediation since 1980. He also provides advanced mediation training and negotiation training. He has published numerous articles and several books on dispute resolution, including The Contemplative Lawyer in Harvard Mediation Law Review (2002).

Riskin is C.A. Leedy Professor of Law and director the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution and the Initiative on Mindfulness in Law and Dispute Resolution at the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law. He received a J.D. from New York University and an LL.M. from Yale.
