Phoenix, AZ (April 4, 2012) – Phoenix School of Law (PSL) invites law students, lawyers, judges, mediators and other legal professionals to an exciting conference taking place on April 13-15th centered around an international law movement gaining more notoriety around the world known as Comprehensive/Integrative Law. The comprehensive law movement contains many models and practices. Some practices, such as peacemaking circles, originated among tribal societies. Others are more recent developments. At times, seemingly identical new models have arisen in different geographic areas. Different names developed, some of which are still used in making reference to the movement. Comprehensive law has been or is sometimes called integrative law, renaissance law, transformational law, visionary law, conscious lawyering, holistic law or holistic justice, creative lawyering, and relationship-based lawyering.
The conference begins on Friday evening which is open to the public and continues on Saturday and Sunday with various panels for interested legal professionals. “Phoenix School of Law is very
