Prof. Marjorie Silver of Touro Law Center writes to say:

We are pleased to announce the publication of Professor Marjorie Silver’s new book:
Transforming Justice, Lawyers, and the Practice of Law
(Marjorie A. Silver, ed., Carolina Academic Press).

 

Transforming Justice, Lawyers and the Practice of Law is a collection of writings by participants in the Project for Integrating Spirituality, Law and Politics (PISLAP) and others actively engaged in transforming law, legal education and social justice into something that is collaborative rather than adversarial, that seeks to heal brokenness rather than merely resolve disputes, and that moves us toward The Beloved Community envisioned by the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. more than fifty years ago.

The collection showcases the abundant ways in which lawyers, judges, law professors and others are employing more communitarian, peaceful and healing ways to resolve conflicts and achieve justice. It is written for those who share similar goals and are eager to learn new ways to practice law and create a legal system that fosters empathy, compassion and constructive change.
