ABSTRACT

Previously a Professor of Law and the Director of Clinical Programs at Arizona Summit Law School, I have been a program administrator for four years and a tenured full professor of law or tenure-track at three ABA-accredited law schools, beginning in 1995. My primary scholarship and speaking areas include what I have called the “comprehensive law movement,” or the future of the law as a healing profession, therapeutic jurisprudence, and the integration of social sciences into the law, including innovative forms of alternative dispute resolution and legal services delivery.  My secondary areas include lawyer personality, wellbeing, and functionality.  My teaching areas include contracts, professional responsibility, and creating, supervising law students in, and practicing law in restorative legal clinics (such as mediation, veterans, homelessness, and general practice clinics).  I also taught law and psychology, mental health law, business and corporate law (such as entrepreneurship clinic, commercial paper, and federal income taxation), and complex federal law (such as corporate taxation, partnership taxation, the taxation of mergers and acquisitions, and tax policy).  I practiced as a corporate, securities, and tax transactional lawyer and mental health psychotherapy resident, prior to academia.  I have written two books and 21 book chapters or journal articles in the law, as well as other pre-law publications, and given over 120 professional presentations nationally and internationally.
