When the heart grieves for what is lost, the spirit rejoices for what remains....Sufi saying
From David Wexler: I am sorry to be the bearer of the devastating news that my wonderful friend, colleague, and co-author Bruce Winick passed away today after struggling for years with serious illness. You all know about his wonderful and ground-breaking scholarship. What some do not know is what a wonderful father and friend he was, and how he handled illness---and, before that, loss of vision--in the most 'therapeutic' way possible. That, and his life in general, should be an inspiration to us all.
As some of the contributors to different vectors of the comprehensive law movement or non-adversarial justice – such as Peggy Hora, David Wexler, Bruce Winick and Victorian Deputy Chief Magistrate Jelena Popovic have observed – judging in a problem-solving court is significantly different from conventional judging. It is little wonder that mainstream legal education, legal practice and judicial education have hitherto largely not properly prepared judicial officers for this form of judging.
From Mike King: The conference flyer and registration information (including a link for online registration) for the Non-Adversarial Justice conference to be held in Melbourne in May 2010 are available at: http://www.aija.org.au/NAJ%202010/NAJ10%20Infoflyer&Reg.pdf.
It promises to be an exciting conference. There is an impressive list of keynote speakers in diverse fields of non-adversarial justice or the comprehensive law movement. Bruce Winick and David Wexler are among the keynote speakers.
