'Mindful’ class for trial lawyers
At Roger Williams University, a ‘mindful’ class for trial lawyers
David M. Zlotnick has crafted a class at Roger Williams University School of Law that incorporates the practice of being mindful, or fully aware, into trial work. He is trying to teach the students to connect with their own minds and hearts so they can better connect with future clients and witnesses.
“I want them to be able to be trial lawyers in a way where they are more compassionate to themselves and others,” says Zlotnick, the law school’s associate dean of academic affairs.
