I have done a lot of work on lawyer personality and lawyer distress and dissatisfaction in the legal profession, but I promised I wouldn't talk about that today, that I would only talk about the comprehensive law movement. The first thing I want to say is, welcome to my dream. You are in the middle of a dream come true which started about five years ago when we were sitting at a therapeutic jurisprudence conference. It was David Wexler, Bruce Winick, some others, and me. It was then that I first thought, "This is a movement, there is a bigger movement here, there are these vectors, and we are all moving toward the same direction, and this is really exciting." There was talk about maybe having a series of conferences or summits and getting all of these vectors together, all of these people together. And the next piece of the dream was to start talking to practicing lawyers who are discontented and talk about the options and explain that maybe there is an alternative. And look at all of you, you are all here, so welcome to my dream.
