Do you ever feel like you’re not a typical lawyer?
Do you ever feel a bit disconnected between who YOU are and the work you do?
Does the idea of a worldwide movement towards emotionally competent and mindful lawyering make a lot of sense to you?
The need has emerged for a space in which like-minded lawyers who identify with the Integrative Law Movement can connect, find out more about what it means to be an Integrative Lawyer and become connected with other lawyers worldwide who are part of the GLOBAL ALLIANCE OF INTEGRATIVE LAWYERS. The Centre for Integrative Law is a consultancy that provides workshops and training in Integrative Law but it’s time to create a separate non-profit association for networking.
Some of the reasons for wanting to meet are these:
- To support each other in developing integrative ways of practising law – for eg one lawyer is using values as a starting point for ANC’s; another wants to connect with lawyers around restorative justice initiatives
- To share resources (books, DVD’s, websites)
- To determine what the needs & wants of the group are
- To develop a model for SAILA and things like its funding, how often we’ll meet, a website for members, drawing the public’s attention to the Integrative Law Movement, how to identify yourself publicly as an Integrative Lawyer
