<div>America is a nation founded on justice and the rule of law. But our laws are too complex, and legal advice too expensive, for poor and even middle-class Americans to get help and vindicate their rights. Criminal defendants facing jail time may receive an appointed lawyer who is juggling hundreds of cases and immediately urges them to plead guilty. Civil litigants are even worse off; usually, they get no help at all navigating the maze of technical procedures and rules. The same is true of those seeking legal advice, like planning a will or negotiating an employment contract.<BR><br /><BR><br /><I>Rebooting Justice</I> presents a novel response to longstanding problems. The answer is to use technology and procedural innovation to simplify and change the process itself. In the civil and criminal courts where ordinary Americans appear the most, we should streamline complex procedures and assume that parties will not have a lawyer, rather than the other way around. We need a cheaper, simpler, faster justice system to control costs. We cannot untie the Gordian knot by adding more strands of rope; we need to cut it, to simplify it. <br /><br /></div>

<h2>What does the practice of law have to do with the Ironman triathlon?</h2> <br /><h3>Building a law practice is the dream of every lawyer. There is no better option to maintain control over your career: your practice area, your clients, your income.

But nothing worth having or doing comes easy. <br /><br />The same is true for the Ironman race. <br /><br />Ironman is a grueling undertaking that entails over 140 miles of combined swimming, biking, and running. Only the most serious competitors successfully complete it. The exhilaration of doing so is something few get to enjoy. <br /><br />There is a common spirit underlying Ironman and starting a solo law practice or small law firm.

Every lawyer can overcome whatever obstacle stands in their way. Being a successful solo or small firm practitioner is not reserved for those from the best law schools, or the highest GPAs.

Interrogating Ethnography: Why Evidence Matters

In this comprehensive review of urban ethnography, Steven Lubet encountered a field that relies heavily on anonymous sources, often as reported by a single investigator whose underlying data remain unseen. Upon digging into the details, he discovered too many ethnographic assertions that were dubious, exaggerated, tendentious, or just plain wrong. Employing the tools and techniques of a trial lawyer, Lubet uses original sources and contemporaneous documentation to explore the stories behind ethnographic narratives. Many turn out to be accurate, but others are revealed to be based on rumors, folklore, and unreliable hearsay.<br /><br /><em>Interrogating Ethnography</em> explains how qualitative social science would benefit from greater attention to the quality of evidence, and provides recommendations for bringing the field more closely in line with other fact-based disciplines such as law and journalism.

<span>"This book offers an easy to follow program for beginning a meditation practice, written by lawyers and for lawyers. I highly recommend this book for anyone in the legal world who has wondered about meditation but hesitated to get started." </span><br /><span>-- Congressman Tim Ryan, author of</span><i> A Mindful Nation</i><span> and </span><i>The Real Food Revolution</i><span><br /><br /><span>Interest in meditation and mindfulness has skyrocketed in recent years, thanks largely to neuroimaging and the body of scientific research that has validated the many benefits of these practices. Sadly, the legal community has for the most part been left out, even though lawyers would clearly benefit from mindfulness. Many lawyers feel hesitant to try meditation, which can seem alien and inaccessible from the vantage point of a professional culture that places great value on logic and reason. </span><br /><span> </span><br /><span>Jeena Cho and Karen Gifford set out to help address this gap in <i>The Anxious Lawyer</i>. Both Cho and Gifford began meditating as practicing attorneys, and </span><span>have firsthand knowledge of the difficulties and rewards of legal practice</span><span>. They</span><span> experienced how meditation and mindfulness practices support a more effective and enjoyable legal practice. Both also found unexpected rewards of meditation that go deeper: better self understanding, more rewarding relationships and a deeper feeling of connection with the world.</span><br /><span> </span><br /><span><i>The Anxious Lawyer </i>provides a straightforward 8-week introductory program on meditation and mindfulness, created by lawyers for lawyers.

<div>Howard Zehr is the father of Restorative Justice and is known worldwide for his pioneering work in transforming understandings of justice. Here he proposes workable principles and practices for making Restorative Justice possible in this revised and updated edition of his bestselling, seminal book on the movement. (The original edition has sold more than 110,000 copies.)<br /><BR>Restorative Justice, with its emphasis on identifying the justice needs of everyone involved in a crime, is a worldwide movement of growing influence that is helping victims and communities heal, while holding criminals accountable for their actions.<br /><BR>This is not soft-on-crime, feel-good philosophy, but rather a concrete effort to bring justice and healing to everyone involved in a crime. In <I>The Little Book of Restorative Justice</I>, Zehr first explores how restorative justice is different from criminal justice. Then, before letting those appealing observations drift out of reach into theoretical space, Zehr presents Restorative Justice practices. Zehr undertakes a massive and complex subject and puts it in graspable from, without reducing or trivializing it.<br /><BR>This resource is also suitable for academic classes and workshops, for conferences and trainings, as well as for the layperson interested in understanding this innovative and influential movement.</div>
