Think that legal practice must be confrontational?
Alternative approaches include holistic law, a tradition that teaches lawyers to be helpers and healers. There is an International Association with focus on prevention and collaboration rather than confrontation. Holistic law and closely related themes such as therapeutic justice and restorative justice are discussed by Wright in the book Lawyers as Peacemakers (2010).
For more information, the book Lawyers as Peacemakers is in the PSL Library.
