Associate Dean Susan L. Brooks is giving a guest lecture on therapeutic and relational approaches in law at the University of Haifa’s College of Criminology on Oct. 18.
Brooks, associate dean for experiential learning and professor of law, is a pioneer in the emerging field of therapeutic jurisprudence. She is also an internationally recognized authority on experiential legal education who has written widely on clinical teaching and models that attend to relationships between student attorneys and clients.
Her lecture, “Can the Justice System be Therapeutic? Transforming Law through Relational Practice,” will precede a panel of Israeli judges and jurists discussing restorative justice, community court, the role of judges in an era of vanishing trials and online dispute resolution.
Brooks is the co-editor of “Learning from Practice,” now in its third edition, and “Clinical Anthology: Readings for Live-Client Clinics,” now in its second edition.
