David Wexler in Memphis
This past week, a committee of lawyers called "Lawyers as Peacemakers, Lawyers as Problemsolvers" was host to David Wexler. David spoke to a group of attorneys on the concept of therapeutic jurisprudence. The good thing is that many of us practice law in some fashion therapeutically; we just didn't know it.
As a legal aid lawyer, part of my practice has always been to be mindful of the particular challenges people in poverty experience.
It was a great learning experience and not only am I grateful to have been afforded the chance to attend but I am also grateful to be a part of such a fabulous group of lawyers.
