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.
