Nathalie Martin is the Frederick M. Hart Chair in Consumer and Clinical Law at University of New Mexico School of Law, where she teaches commercial and consumer law, as well as mindfulness and professional development. As a long-time yoga and meditation teacher, Nathalie is part of a growing movement to teach mindfulness and emotional intelligence in the law school classroom. This movement makes explicit that the interpersonal side of lawyering is critical and that many lawyers need help finding purpose or meaning in their work. Nathalie is the author of dozens of books and articles, including Yoga for Lawyers: Mind-Body Techniques to Feel Better All the Time (2015, with Hallie Love).
'Just as the legal profession is finally appreciating the importance of non-cognitive skills that are not typically taught in law school classrooms, Nathalie Martin's wonderful new book arrives to lay a foundation for those essential skills. This book is a must-read for every lawyer and should be a part of every law school curriculum. Better still, read this book before you go to law school, and you will have a big head start in your legal education.' Todd D. Peterson, George Washington School of Law
