Reimagining Lawyering: Supporting Well-Being and Liberation
We are living in a time of tremendous uncertainty and ongoing oppression for many. Yet, we have often demonstrated our ability to heal from past traumas, rise to whatever challenges present themselves, and even find new generative possibilities, especially when we act collectively. The present moment calls on us to reimagine law and lawyering in mindful and wholehearted ways that center relationships and respect for the dignity of all human beings. Our ability to act accordingly can strengthen and enhance our own sense of wellbeing and potentially transform the legal profession into one promotes healing, belonging, and liberation.
