The Light Lawyer CPD program, due to be launched shortly, will offer on-demand online courses in managing work-related stress, positive psychology, meditation, mindfulness training, empathy, effective self-management and leadership skills.
Nancy Bryla, chief light officer at The Light Lawyer and general counsel at Transaction Network Services, founded the organisation after experiencing first-hand the benefits of meditation and mindfulness.
“[The Light Lawyer] will provide lawyers and law students with transformational courses to empower them to take their health and wellbeing into their own hands,” Ms Bryla said.
“[This includes] essential life skills like meditation, mindfulness and emotional resilience.”
The aim is to teach lawyers how to balance a busy lifestyle, manage stress, improve mental and physical wellbeing and enhance personal and professional relationships.
