About this CLE:
Integrative Law is an emerging paradigm of law that is holistic, innovative, and part of an emerging global movement. The four pillars of Integrative Law are:
1. Integrative Lawyers are reflective.
2. Integrative Lawyers are values and purpose-based.
3. Integrative Lawyers are systems and design thinkers.
4. Integrative Lawyers are harbingers of a new consciousness.
This session will explore the connection with lawyer well-being and integrative law practice. We'll discover the values of integrative lawyers, some of the new models of law practice, and the essential skills of practicing in an integrative way. Topics will cross many subject areas: professionalism, well-being, and skills. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on any areas of contemporary legal practice and what it means to be a legal professional in the new normal.
