Collaborative Law: Training Needs|
Michael M. Nash JD, PhD
Development of collaborative law is considered.
The focus is now on the client rather than fact
patterns and legal forms. Lawyers will need
training to operate effectively in this manner.
The humanistic or Rogerian model seems to be
appropriate for guiding training and research.
Other needs include certification development,
predictive selection instruments and appropriate
outcome research. Certification will probably
develop along traditional legal specialty lines.
