I am in the homestretch on the book-writing project! The deadline is tomorrow and I have only four chapters left to write. Time to really focus! (That training as a litigator comes in handy at times.)
For those I haven't already greeted this year: Happy New Year! (At what point do we stop saying that? Is it the middle of January? The end?)
As you might imagine, I'm busy with a lot of activities for 2015. You're not going to read much about those, yet. Mainly, I'm working on my book. (Tentative title) Integrative Law will be published by the American Bar Association later this year. Before that, I need to write it.

Imagine… You are sitting around a conference table with a number of other students your first year of law school. Let’s say in the first month, if not week. Perhaps you are sharing a meal. At the least, you are together in an open and collaborative environment.
Keep imagining… Whomever is facilitating — whether a law professor or maybe even an executive coach — explains the ground rules to everyone. I.E. this is a circle, a ritual gathering really to mark the beginning of your time in law school. Moreover, a gathering to establish tone and intention for what is ultimately a rite of passage.
