Integrative law is an international movement that responds to the challenges of law practice with creative, innovative solutions. It blends the human and the analytical. The approach spans personal and systemic change. Integrative lawyers are purpose-oriented, that is, they have a clear sense of their own purpose and the purpose of law; they have a broader view of their roles as lawyers, often seeing themselves as change agents; and they are innovative, looking for ways to serve clients and themselves.”
J Kim Wright in Lawyers Weekly, Australia, 2012.
Five Australian and New Zealand professionals come together with US Expert J Kim Wright to discuss four pillars of the global law movement:
Integrative Lawyers as integrative, reflective professionals;
Integrative Lawyers as practitioners guided by purpose and values;
Integrative Lawyers as system thinkers and designers;
Integrative Lawyers as harbingers of a new cultural consciousness and leaders in social evolution.
This Webinar recording is an exercise in Integrative Law in action. Learn how these practitioners have responded to practice challenges by developing their own unique models and discover the tools you can use to chart your family practice pathway.
For family lawyers, mediators, dispute resolution providers, conflict management coaches and system change agents and designers.
