Research discoveries over the past decade have dramatically changed understandings about how our human brains actually work. These discoveries potentially impact almost everything that lawyers do when we work with clients. 

  • What if nearly everything you learned about working with clients is based on demonstrably false 18th Century ideas about how the human brain experiences conflict and makes decisions and choices?
  • What if emotion, not reason, drives the train?
  • What if the upholstery on your conference room chairs matters as much as the force of your arguments in settling cases?
  • What if providing cold drinks vs. hot drinks changes trust levels for you, your client, and everyone else in the room?
  • What if providing more information makes it less likely that your client will make reasoned choices and decisions?
  • What if beginning with shared values yields not only stronger contracts, but stronger working relationships that reduce the risk of litigation down the road? 

REGISTER NOW for a workshop by Pauline Tesler, Esq., on this rapidly evolving area of neuroscience.  

Pauline, known for having written the definitive book about Collaborative Law and for her ability to clearly present and explain the subject, is now referred to as the “Godmother of Collaborative Law” after having also been a principal organizer of the well-established and highly respected International Academy of Collaborative Professionals. Most recently,  Pauline has launched the Integrative Law Institute,  dedicated to answering some of the questions posed above. Now teaching lawyers and others practical take-always based on these game-changing discoveries in the fields of brain science, neuroeconomics, positive psychology, body/ mind awareness science, and more, she is poised to play an equally important role in our understanding and utilization of this new learning.Do
