The Caring Lawyer: Applying the Principles of Therapeutic Jurisprudence
- via Zoom
Today's most successful attorneys have embraced a new role in their relationships with clients. Many of these attorneys have developed the skilled application of therapeutic jurisprudence, the perspective that all interventions into clients' legal problems and related nonlegal issues should make matters better, not worse, as a result of the law's involvement. Practitioners of therapeutic jurisprudence respond to the totality of a client's circumstances and become true partners with the clients they serve.
Hear from our panel: Prof. David Wexler, University of Puerto Rico School of Law and president, International Society of Therapeutic Jurisprudence; The Hon. Miriam Hutchins, District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City (ret.); Amanda Odorimah, Esq., Hearns Law Group, LLP; Spencer Hall, Esq., CFCC Truancy Court Program Coordinator; and Jasmine Martinez, current UB Law student.
Prof. Barbara Babb, founder and director of the Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts, will moderate the discussion.
