Abstract

This paper explores the use of meditation to cultivate the qualities required for reflective practice in the legal profession. Taking the United Kingdom Bar Council’s Professional Statement for Barristers as a starting point, it begins by outlining some of the qualities associated with a reflective approach to the professional practice. Next, it defines meditation and discusses the use of meditation as a means of cultivating reflective practice. In light of the benefits reported, the paper addresses challenges to the incorporation of meditation into legal education and concludes there is merit in further research involving both law students and legal practitioners.
