Mindfulness in Law Schools Request for Proposals

Friends and colleagues,

We write to invite you to submit abstracts for presentations at a day-long conference on Mindfulness in Law Schools to be held during next summer’s SEALS Meeting.

The 2020 SEALS Meeting will be held at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale, from Thursday, July 30 until Wednesday, August 5; the Mindfulness in Law Schools Conference is scheduled for Sunday, August 2.

The conference will include a full day of programs and panels about mindfulness and law, mixed with opportunities to experience and participate in mindfulness activities. Individual and panel programs will run approximately 75 minutes. We welcome and encourage a variety of presentation formats and topics.

Interested participants may wish to propose a panel, discussion, or presentation of some sort on any topics related to mindfulness and law.  Suggested topics might include identifying, addressing, assessing, and increasing access to mindfulness activities in the classroom, on campus, and more broadly in legal education, and how to develop and conduct empirical research on mindfulness in legal education.

To propose a presentation or panel, please prepare a description of your idea, including a brief summary and lists of proposed presenters, presenter topics, and school affiliations, and email it to the Mindfulness in Law Schools Conference Program Co-Chair Glen-Peter Ahlers,, by close of business Friday, October 18, 2019. Please include the words “SEALS Mindfulness Conference Proposal” in the subject line. We will send all applicants the final schedule by November 2, 2019.

We are thrilled about the opportunity to host this day-long Mindfulness in Law Schools Conference As many of you surely know, SEALS is always a terrific family-friendly conference at a five-star facility on the Atlantic Ocean.

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you feel might be interested. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at SEALS next year.

Yours Truly,

Professors Katerina (“Katya”) Lewinbuk (South Texas College of Law Houston) and Glen-Peter Ahlers (Barry University School of Law), Mindfulness in Law Schools Conference Program Co-Chairs
