Join me and Woody Mosten for three days in our first joint Collaborative Divorce "Master Class" on June 23-25, 2011 in downtown Denver, Colorado. Colorado Collaborative Law Professionals, the statewide collaborative practice organization, is sponsoring this first-of-its-kind event, in which Woody and I will teach proven strategies and techniques for jump-starting and sustaining a vibrant collaborative practice.
In addition to three full days of training, the event includes two optional informal evening discussion sessions with Pauline and Woody.
This week, David Brooks wrote eloquently in the New York Times about the enormous shift in understanding of our biological nature as human primates that is sweeping business, academic, and professional circles.
It has been two years since the Cutting Edge Law web site was officially launched. And what a two years! We've helped bring a lot of ideas into the mainstream of law. Publishing a best-selling book at the American Bar Association, the 5,000 mile book tour, new interviews, and several new CLE programs have kept us busy.
As we begin the third year, we're working on a lot of different projects.
Michael Coming Into the Spotlight
Collaborative Family Law Practice of Marin is sponsoring a two--part training series in February and March 2011 entitled "Practical Neuro-Collaboration."
This two-part series is based on modules from the 18-hour NeuroCollaboration workshop I presented at the Straus Dispute Resolution Institute (Pepperdine University Law School) in 2009 and 2010 with Thomas B. Lewis, M.D.
Winter is our season to step back and take stock of what we're doing here at Cutting Edge Law. After the whirlwind cross-country tour, Michael and I both landed in Denver and an amazing house-sitting gig. We've been enjoying time in the Rockies to break up our work.
On the cross-country tour, I had many conversations and answered many questions. It was a good opportunity to take the pulse of the legal profession from law students, lawyers, judges and professors. I'm more convinced than ever that we are on an evolutionary path in the law.
