A strong, innovative Advisory Board helps ILI to build outstanding programming at the intersection of law, social policy, neuroscience, positive psychology, restorative justice, and other Integrative Law vectors. We are proud to announce the following new members of ILI’s Advisory Board:
- David Eagelman, a neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author of Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, which explores the neuroscience “under the hood” of the conscious mind — that is, all the aspects of neural function to which we have no awareness or access. He directs the Laboratory for Perception and Action at the Baylor College of Medicine, where he also directs the Initiative on Neuroscience and Law.
- J. Kim Wright, founding publisher of CuttingEdgeLaw.com (a resource and community for news and conversations about integrative, problem-solving approaches to law) and author of Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law
- Susan Swaim Daicoff,J.D., LL.M., M.S, visiting professor of law at University of Florida’s Levin School of Law, and author of Lawyer, Know Thyself: A Psychological Analysis of Personality Strengths and Weaknesses (Law and Public Policy), as well as a new textbook, Comprehensive Law Practice: Law as a Healing Profession, and many journal articles exploring the cognitive and social psychology of lawyers. She is a leader in the emerging integrative law movement.
- Marco Iacoboni, Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, Director of the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Lab at the Ahmanson-Lovelace Brain Mapping Center of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and author of Mirroring People: The Science of Empathy and How We Connect with Others . Iacoboni pioneered the research on mirror neurons, the “smart cells” in our brain that allow us to understand others.
It’s an honor to have the support of pioneering thinkers and researchers of this caliber.
We are inviting other leaders in fields relating to Integrative Law to join ILI’s Advisory Board this year and will announce new members from time to time.
