Lawyers as Peacemakers

Our law firm is pleased to announce that the American Bar Association has published “The Illicit Relationship Between Lawyers and Emotion” by Jill H. Breslau as a chapter in its new book, “Lawyers as Peacemakers”.

Jill writes that while lawyers are trained to ignore emotions and use logic, facts and reason, this is like the captain of the Titanic seeing the tip of the iceberg and ignoring what’s under the water.  Emotions are hidden and mysterious structures that influence human behavior powerfully and profoundly.

The book is edited by J. Kim Wright and available at the ABA website.
