In 2007, an array of attorneys, legal organizations and sponsors came together in Memphis, Tenn., to introduce innovative approaches in legal practice (including collaborative law, restorative justice, therapeutic jurisprudence, transformative mediation, holistic law and problem solving courts) through a regional conference titled Lawyers as Peacemakers, Lawyers as Problem-Solvers.  That conference was the genesis for the Memphis Collaborative Alliance as well as more in-depth continuing legal education on innovative legal practice.  This is the fourth Memphis conference and second regional conference to continue the dialogue on Lawyers as Problem-Solvers.

In addition to national speakers, this conference will also include an afternoon symposium entitled, “New Voices in Mental Health & Drug Courts,” featuring Amanda Peters, Associate Professor of Law, South Texas College of Law; Suzanne Villano, Teaching Fellow and Supervising Attorney, University of Miami School of Law; Satish Kedia, Professor and Coordinator of the Social and Behavioral Science Doctoral Program, University of Memphis; and Professors Christina Zawisza and Kevin H. Smith, University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. These presenters will have their papers published in the student- edited Mental Health Law and Policy Journal, published at The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law.

On Thursday evening Dale C. Hetzler, MSCM, JD, Chief Legal Officer, Erlanger Health System, will present a program titled “Doctors as Advocates, Lawyers as Healers” with a reception immediately afterwards at the home of Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Janice Holder.
