Project for Integrating Law, Politics and Spirituality
From the website for The Project for Integrating Spirituality, Law, and Politics (PISLAP):
[PISLAP] is a nationwide network of lawyers, law professors, law students, and others interested in the progressive transformation of law. Our aim is twofold. We seek to develop and articulate a new vision of law’s relationship to social transformation. This involves an emphasis on the need to overcome the alienation that separates self and other and seeks to connect the inner and the outer aspects of our social existence. We also seek to bring together leaders and activists in such spiritual/political/humanistic legal movements as Restorative Justice, Understanding-based Mediation, Collaborative Law, and Humanizing Legal Education under a common theoretical and practical vision that can unify their respective efforts.
In Part 3: Peter Gabel ties the critical legal studies movement to the current PISLAP work. Social change should focus on a world based upon love and connection. What new models promote that connection?
Part 2: Peter Gabel continues, talking about the Project for Integrating Law, Politics, and Spirituality, PISLAP, explaining that one of the purposes of the PISLAP is developing a new understanding of law that emphasizes what connects us rather than what separates us. Projects are not only related to legal doctrine and also to reasoning.
