The Lawyers as Peacemakers and Healers conference in Phoenix was an amazing opportunity to gather and celebrate a movement. With about four dozen presenters, it was a Who's Who of Phoenix legal luminaries.
The conference was videotaped and is available on line at:
Are you anywhere near Phoenix? If so, make sure you come to the Phoenix Law conference this weekend!
Where: 1 N. Central - Phoenix Law School, Phoenix, Arizona
On Friday night, April 13, we're open to the public and we'll be showcasing and celebrating the many integrative law models in Phoenix. Our goal is to share this movement with the public, to help them understand the changes in the legal system that are happening and evolving. Friday night is FREE! (There is even food!)
In my travels around the country, I've had thousands of conversations with lawyers. Most have told me that they went to law school hoping to make a difference in the world. Whether it was to save the environment, create social justice, or world peace, they had dreams about what being a lawyer could help them do.
Steven Keeva wrote Transforming Practices, Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life. It and the holistic lawyer columns he wrote as a senior editor at the ABA Journal were a turning point in our movement. Steve was diagnosed with early Alzheimers while barely 50 years old.

Did that headline get your attention? Are you looking for the magic formula to earn more money? Or do you think any such claims are hype and schemes?
I think you'll find that this is a lot different from that. Sean really did increase his income by 60% by expressing his passion in his law practice. How did he do that? How could you do that, too?
The next call series will begin on February 27! Register at
In our last series, we explored a wide range of what it means to be a lawyer who is an agent of evolutionary social change. Well over 100 lawyers registered and participated in the call so I know this group is inspired to make a difference in the world.
