In an article about “mindfulness” in law schools, Acting Dean Martin Pritikin was quoted regarding a new class that the Law School will be offering next year.
“Martin H. Pritikin, the acting dean at Whittier Law School, said a little mindfulness training will be part of a new one-unit class for first-year students starting this fall. Called ‘The Legal Mind,’ the class will cover topics such as critical thinking, professional identity, self-assessment and emotional intelligence.
Pritkin said he was skeptical about including mindfulness until he read up on it and realized the practical benefits. ‘Even if you’re a brass-tacks kind of person…it makes sense from a very practical perspective,’ he said.”
