Due Diligence

Lawyers are provided a larger perspective with which to appreciate the general tendency to blindly accept the veracity and legitimacy of one’s thoughts and feelings especially when engaged in interpersonal exchanges. Reflective skills are taught to enable the reflection, in real time, on the accuracy (and potential – perhaps inevitable fallacy) of such beliefs. As a result, lawyers develop the ability to conduct a reality-check that can ease difficult moments, both for themselves and others. It also paves the way for a more genuine understanding of internal biases and prejudices held against persons and groups. As a result, conditioned mind states that historically have perpetuated these beliefs and corresponding behaviors have the opportunity to become examined and transformed.
