What is trauma-informed lawyering?
Myrna McCallum–a former prosecutor and Indian Residential School adjudicator–sees it as a critical competency requirement, yet one that’s missing from law school and bar course curriculums.
McCallum sets out to offer some of that education through in-depth conversations with fellow lawyers, judges, academics and others on vicarious trauma, restorative/transformative justice, cultural humility, trauma and diversity, and many more vitally important topics.
From episode 1:
“I created this podcast to educate, inform and inspire lawyers and all interested listeners. Although I originally had law students, lawyers and judges in mind when I thought about this podcast and who I wanted it to speak to, it really is for everyone, especially those who have worked inside the courtroom, or with police services, advocacy organizations, or just anyone committed to access to justice.”
