In reading Scott's excellent guide, I was struck by how incredibly useful this book could be for law students struggling to find themselves and achieves greater balance, happiness, and success. I say this based on seven years of professional experience working with lawyers and law students to integrate meditation and mindfulness into their lives.

Mindfulness for Law Students presents easy to access mindfulness tools keyed to specific concepts taught in law school. I could imagine the joy and relief students might experience in learning just a few of these tools and incorporating them into their legal studies! I've long toyed with ways to use everyday objects as cues to help me remember what's important - things like balance, happiness, feeling my breath and body, and feeling connected to others. Scott has created an ingenious method to use many concepts we learn in law school as reminders that help realize all of these things. It's like you could be sitting in class, studying - doing much of what you normally do - but with an enhanced perspective to cut through the doldrums and stresses and excel personally and professionally.

If you are a law student and would appreciate more balance in your life, a new way to relate to your studies, help focusing on your work while maintaining a connection to the bigger picture, skills to manage law school stress, or how to actually increase your joy while in the midst of the challenging law school experience, then please pick up a copy of this book and give it just a little bit of your time.

A dear friend of mine recommended that I read this book. My first thought, as to why would a non-law student want to read such a book, was quickly put to rest after scanning a few pages. So, I decided to get my own copy and am glad that I did. From my perspective, I can tell you that this book is not really about using mindfulness as a vehicle for studying the law. It uses instead the study of the law as a vehicle for achieving greater mindfulness. Chapters with titles such as "Due Diligence," "A Living, Breathing Constitution" and "Gerrymandering" all begin with an explanation of a legal concept, and then delve into how such a concept relates to the functioning of the brain, living life and even reconciling with aging and death. For example, the page on "Hearsay" concludes with the observation, "like legal hearsay, many of your thoughts are inherently unreliable and warrant further investigation before you allow them into evidence..." In a world where legalisms like "stare decisis" can enter into conversations about current events (i.e., the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court justices), I see this book as a resource for all people, not just lawyers. The properly trained legal mind is a powerful thing, and Mr. Rogers' work here takes the first step in the discovery of mindfulness. That every single law student should have this book is a given. What's wonderful is the surprise that non-lawyers should read this book, too. I strongly recommend it.

In the words of Professor Leonard Riskin, "[Mindfulness for the Law Student] offers an exceptionally creative approach to bringing mindfulness into the legal profession." In my opinion, if the reader actively engages in the exercises throughout this book, the reader will learn valuable techniques that will allow him or her to become more mindful. If practiced routinely, this will ease the stress inflicted by the demands in law school and further help the reader facilitate into a more harmonious and balanced life that is in the present moment. The exercises do not take more than a few minutes to complete and the return on investment is substantial. If one feels agitated or vexed, there are a plethora of simple and quick exercises throughout the book that can help.

The Mindfulness and Jurisight programs can alleviate stress and tension, help you think more clearly, and design and construct new neuro-pathways for a lifetime of more fulfillment and happiness. The core of this book centralizes and details a message that one should allow life to happen as is, while also recognizing the accompanying thoughts and bodily sensations, and become aware of these events in a present moment, mindful manner.

In the chaotic world that is law school, it is tantamount to focus your mind when you need to, and this book helps you to do exactly that by giving exercises that can create intentional, mindful focus which will ultimately alleviate stress. When law students and attorneys incorporate mindfulness practices, they are better prepared to deal with the future and unforeseen events, however these events may arise. Additionally, law students and attorneys create and enhance their ability to be more mindful in the present moment for what arises in their interactions with others.

A lot of this book is designed to foster "buy-in" among law students and lawyers about the concept of mindfulness and the mental and physical benefits of mindfulness practice. It does that well, with very quick-reading explanations and examples. Everything is at a very basic level, with very little detail or discussion. As a result of the book's brevity, I found some of the analogies and explanations to be facile and shallow (and too heavily reliant on silly puns!), but the book is nevertheless still quite convincing, and its exercises are both easy to do and helpful in fostering mindful awareness. Overall, it is the best short, easy introduction to mindfulness practice I have encountered.
