When they come back down from the hills, lawyers undergoing "mindful meditation" during a gathering in the Catskills of New York this September will have spent four days living like monks in hopes of becoming more skillful counselors. They will dine together, wordlessly, three times daily, and they will exist without cell phones, BlackBerrys, e-mail, iPods or newspapers. But it is anticipated they will emerge as better attorneys, more able to control their impulses and choose their words more wisely.
