Integrative Law is the collective name used by a worldwide movement of legal professionals
who are rethinking and exploring what the law is and what its function should be in society.
They are designing new models and approaches which often arise from a different set of values.

Using the model of a garden, we see integrative law being like soil, from which many new
models (flowers) of legal practice are emerging. The values in this “soil” are different from the conventional legal values (safety, certainty, emotional detachment, etc.). 


Integrative Law values are more focused on caring, listening, compassion, dignity, inclusivity, being relational, happiness, wellbeing, and love. The values represent a different mindset or paradigm. From the integrative mindset, new models, ways of thinking and acting arise. Examples include collaborative practice, restorative justice, Earth law, sharing law, relational contracts, therapeutic jurisprudence, and several others.
