Reclaiming Law as a Healing Profession
We believe that law can be a healing profession, and that lawyers can be problem solvers and even peacemakers. At the Integrative Law Institute, our mission is to bring insights and tools to lawyers so that they have what they need to return the practice of law to this original purpose: helping people reach resolution that heals the conflict.
Drawing on recent discoveries in the biological and social sciences and from traditional body/mind awareness practices, we provide practical as well as transformative educational programs that are grounded in the idea that conflict can best be understood as a manifestation of a dysfunctional human system, rather than as a problem that can be resolved through the clash of conflicting legal rights and entitlements.
“Integrative Law is an important next step in the work of ‘humanitarian’ lawyers who have decided alternative dispute resolution is a better alternative to litigation. Litigators can benefit from learning these concepts for their own growth and insight into what clients experience in the divorce process.”
