Anne Lamott says, “My mind is like a bad neighborhood – I try not to go there alone.” I sometimes feel that way about the law.
There’s almost nothing about practicing law that I can recall, that’s about creating good neighborhoods or safe neighborhoods, or safety in general.
What if that changed? Could mindfulness support the creation of an adversary system, or could it work within the current system, in a way that allowed everyone to feel safe?
It’s at least worth exploring.
