The manuscript is finished!
The manuscript for Lawyers as Changemakers, The Emerging International Integrative Law Movement has gone to the publisher! Now the ABA wheels turn toward copyediting, fine-tuning, layout, cover art, and perhaps even tweaking the title before it is released next March-ish. The final manuscript had 248,993 words. There are examples of the movement in action on six continents.
Writing and editing was an organic process. Many of you wrote your stories and then I looked to see how that demonstrated integrative law. I learned a lot and the book that has gone to the publisher reflects what I learned from all the contributors and others I've encountered on my journey.
Below is a collage of the contributors to the book. I daresay there is no finer-looking, heart-centered group of lawyers anywhere... until we get together another group of us at some point.
[If you contributed and don't see your photo, please be in touch. It means I don't have a photo for you!]
I have a few loose ends to tie up (like doing everything that I have postponed for the last several months!) and the next chapter will begin.
