UF Law Faculty in the News
Leonard L. Riskin
Chesterfield Smith Professor of Law
- San Francisco Chronicle, July 20. Quoted in an article on the importance of stress-reducing mindfulness mediatation in the legal world. Riskin, who began discussing mindfulness meditation in his law classes in 1999, wrote an article, “The Contemplative Lawyer: On the Potential Contributions of Mindfulness Meditation to Law Students, Lawyers and Their Clients,” which launched a nationwide awareness. He is referred to in the San Francisco Chronicle article from a previous interview with an online legal magazine, Mediate.com. “I believe that mindfulness can help mediators and other dispute resolution professionals (including lawyers) feel better, get more satisfaction out of their work, and do a better job for their clients.”
Michael L. Seigel
- St. Petersburg Times, August 28. Quoted in an article discussing the selection of a new U.S. attorney for the north and central Florida region despite the recent resignation of U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. “I wouldn’t see this as hampering it at all,” he said. “Typically, the attorney general doesn’t get involved in the selection of the individual U.S. attorneys.”
