This upcoming week will be another milestone in Tennessee for the development of a collaborative law process. The National Association for Women Judges will be in town and my intern from last summer, Diana Combs, will receive the Sandra Day O'Connor Scholarship award. Diana is a 2L at the University of Memphis and made law review this summer. Her note will focus on Collaborative Law Process and I couldn't be happier!
Just watched Dave Shearon's video. Great guy, great topic. I have seen Dave on a number of occasions and really appreciate how he points out in his comments on the war of values lawyers face when trying to solve problems the loss of one of humankind's key intelligences, emotional. When you take that out of the equation, it's no wonder disputants are so dissatisfied with Court outcomes.
There isn't room in a courtroom for emotion, and how do you effectively problem solve if you don't engage your emotion?
Great video, Dave, Mike and Kim!!
Dave uses his son as an example of the positive explanatory style, learned optimism, and how it applies to law school.
Part 2: How can we change the practice of law, change the lives of lawyers and how we perform for society? Why are lawyers the way we are?
