AALS Balance in Legal Education Section forms "Mindfulness in Law Affinity Group"
The Executive Committee of the Balance in Legal Education section of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), led by its president, Larry Krieger and president elect, Julie Sandine, has unanimously endorsed a petition to establish a Mindfulness in Law Affinity Group. Professor Richard Reuben, of Missouri Law, who spearheaded this effort encourages law faculty interested in mindfulness to "join the Balance Section and help grow this community," and requests that those who are interested let him know as there is presently no sorting mechanism to identify those members of the Balance section who are also interested in mindfulness. The link to join the Balance section is found by clicking here.
