Mindfulness and Wellbeing Solutions for Lawyers

What if you had scientifically validated, evidence-based solutions to solve for the pain and suffering in the law?


In 2010, Judi Cohen formed Warrior One to solve for our pain and suffering. We all know its elements:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance use
  • Bias
  • Lack of belonging
  • Attrition

We were offering these solutions long before the ABA 2017 Path to Lawyer Wellbeing Report, which officially sounded the alarm and named mindfulness as a powerful solution. More than 220 legal organizations have now taken the  ABA Wellbeing Pledge.

Our Mindfulness for the Legal Mind programs support that pledge and enable you to solve for wellbeing.

About Us

Our Organization

Who is Warrior One?

Its Founder, Judi Cohen, Plus Many Remarkable Collaborators

Judi’s legal background. Currently a lecturer at Berkeley Law,  Judi practiced as a real estate attorney for thirty years before that, and taught academic courses for ten of those years at the University of San Francisco School of Law. In 2010 she began teaching Mindfulness for the Legal Mind at Golden Gate University SOL before joining Berkeley Law in 2016. 


Judi’s mindfulness & wellbeing journey. Judi’s mindfulness journey started in 1986, two years after she became a lawyer, when her own overwhelm and anxiety began to impact her wellbeing as a new lawyer. Taking a precious three weeks off, she journeyed to India to discover whether mindfulness could help. The practices she learned, convinced her she was on the right path. Judi began studying regularly with mindfulness teachers in the Insight, Zen, and secular mindfulness traditions, and with teachers in the contemplative neuroscience community. She continues to deepen her own practice through ongoing study plus extended silent retreat. Some of the remarkable teachers Judi has had the good fortune to study with, now also teach in Warrior One’s biennial, 9-month, Mindfulness in Law Teacher Training (MLTT). 


Founding & Collaborating at Warrior One. Once Judi felt she had integrated the benefits of mindfulness into her work as a lawyer and law professor, she founded Warrior One in 2010 to help increase her colleagues’ wellbeing. In 2015 she started the Thursday morning Wake Up Call, which continues live and also became a podcast at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2016, Judi realized that our profession needed more mindfulness-in-law teachers, and co-created MLTT, now beginning its 5th iteration in 2024. Many of Judi’s fellow luminaries in the mindfulness-in-law community collaborate each year to offer their wisdom at MLTT.
