A Second Tier Legal System?
(Or: Conscious Lawyers?)
Kim J Wright
Most people consider law to be stodgy and dry, a fixed structure that is rigid and unfriendly. Lawyers are the ambassadors of that rigidity and unfriendliness. Or are they?
J. Kim Wright is an American lawyer, a nomad who has been traveling around the world for almost ten years. In her travels, she has met and showcased hundreds of lawyers who are operating in more conscious, creative, and compassionate ways.
From Conscious Contracts to Restorative Justice to friendly divorces to therapeutic courts, she will share with us about the new perspectives on law.
Kim believes that non-lawyers should be as interested in the legal system as lawyers. Law is like DNA, it shapes what is possible, provides a framework for relationships and responsibilities.

Organized by volunteers for volunteers. And the CHE has costs. From the Chamber of Commerce and the website to time for connections between parties. These can end up into collaborations that we could not have dreamed of. To continue to make all this possible, we invite you to become a donor of the CHE. With an automatic transfer of at least € 20,– per month you make all this effort possible. The Center for Human Emergence NL is recognized as a charity, so your donations are tax deductible.
