Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law

Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law. Chicago: ABA Book Publishing. 2010. 528 pp. ISBN 978-1-60442-862-9.
from Lainey Feingold's review on BeyondChron:

J. Kim Wright is an ambitious woman. In this comprehensive resource manual, she describes dozens of ways in which lawyers, judges and legal workers across the country (and around the world) are attempting to change their profession for the better. The terms sound hopeful – Holistic Law, Renaissance Law, Transformative Law, Law with a Meditative Perspective. Spiritual Law, Law as a Healing Profession, Restorative Justice, Therapeutic Jurisprudence. Most profoundly, as the title reflects, “Lawyers as Peacemakers.”

Lawyers as Peacemakers, published by the American Bar Association, clocks in at over 500 pages including appendixes, resources and information about its many contributors. The book includes essays, quotes, interview snippets, profiles and articles written by both Wright and leaders in the various alternative legal processes she explores.
