Center For Thriving In Law

Life is challenging. How you live it doesn't have to be.

Law is a high-intensity, high-demand profession. 

I was there, both as a practicing lawyer and in management.

So I created a course that taught law students how to manage stress, build resilience, enhance their productivity and performance, and find their why, so that they could build a career that sustained them.

Then practicing lawyers started saying, “Hey, I need that. I could use that right now,” and "I wish I had that in law school."

You spoke. I listened.

Three succinct courses packed with tools and strategies help you work better and feel better.

Focused learning modules equip you with emotional intelligence, mindset, productivity, resilience and stress reduction tools and strategies. 

Cultivate mental fitness, emotional agility, greater resilience, and increased performance and practice enjoyment. 

Move from burnout to thriving.

"My job as a litigator and trial attorney in a high-stress practice was making me sick. I was almost ready to throw in the towel. Working with Judith turned my life around and helped me build tools around resiliency, making sure my practice fit with my values, and navigating conflict. Now I am thriving in my career and feel very fulfilled in my work. I now think of being a lawyer as a career instead of just a job." 

Kevin G. Reyes, Attorney

"I used the steps you gave us for dealing with moments of "mental hijack," and it really worked! I am a member of the Negotiation Honors program and we are preparing for a competition in Houston, Texas at the end of this month. I panicked before a practice round and it seemed like all the information escaped my mind right before I was supposed to make an introduction. I then remembered what you said, started to breathe, and collected myself. "

Gayane Ghandilyan, Law Student

"Your course was extremely valuable, especially during bar prep! I made sure to focus as much as a could, but gave myself ample mental breaks. I meditated, and made sure to self-evaluate to see how I was doing mentally.  At one point, I recognized that after really tuning into myself, I needed to change course. I listened to myself and I’m happy to report that I was successful. The lessons of your class were extremely helpful. Thank you for everything you taught me!"

Jessica Mejorado, Attorney
