Mindfulness and Judging

Jeremy D. Fogel
January 26, 2016

This is a primer on mindfulness and its uses in judging. Mindfulness involves slowing down one’s mental processes enough to allow one to notice as much as possible about a given moment or situation, and then to act thoughtfully based on what one has noticed. Much of the discussion of mindfulness in relation to judges so far has focused on health and wellness, but mindfulness also has obvious implications for the actual work that judges do.

A collection of useful resources about mindfulness can be found at Mindfulness and Judging: Resources for Judges.
