Lawyers As Peacemakers & Healers – 2d Annual Conference

PH law logoPhoenix School of Law (PSL) will again be hosting this exciting conference in February 2013. The conference will bring together the disciplines of the Comprehensive/Integrative Law movement to educate the public, encourage and support lawyers, judges, mediators, and other legal professionals in this work. Comprehensive Law, also known as Integrative Law, is an international movement in law that integrates concepts of healing conflict, peacemaking, and humanistic values into legal practice. It includes disciplines such as:

  • Therapeutic Jurisprudence
  • Discovering Agreement: A Framework for Shifting Business Paradigms toward Trust and Partnership
  • Collaborative Law
  • Restorative Justice
  • Reflective practices in the law
  • Reducing the toxicity of law practice
  • And other approaches to law and dispute resolution that focus on human and relational well-being.

The conference begins on Friday evening, which is open to the public and continues Saturday and Sunday with CLE opportunities. Presenters include leaders in the Comprehensive Law (law as a healing profession) movement such as Professor Susan Daicoff, Integrative Law leader and attorney/author J. Kim Wright; Michael Zimmerman, former Chief Justice of the Utah Supreme Court and a meditation instructor; Rhonda V. Magee, Professor, University of San Francisco, and many other local and national presenters. The conference also will highlight many of PSL’s professors.
