About Transforming Practices

In 1999, Transforming Practices became the first book to explore bringing your soul to the practice of law and using the law to heal, and now this timeless treatise on finding fulfillment returns to the American Bar Association in a 10th Anniversary Edition.

Author Steven Keeva skillfully examines how lawyers can find deeper meaning in their work, practice more compassionately, and discover more enjoyment in what they do, all by developing a greater awareness and respect for their inner lives. Filled with inspiring profiles of lawyers who have successfully changed their work habits and attitudes and who have healed themselves as individuals and within their communities, this book makes it clear that the opportunity for change exists for every lawyer, in every kind of practice.

Through interviews and anecdotes, Keeva shows that it is okay for a lawyer to be human, to care, and to let the values and priorities that matter at home also matter at work.
What Others Are Saying

"Steven Keeva was among the first to recognize that the pervasive unhappiness throughout so much of the legal profession was not the product of a problem with the profession itself. Rather, it was due, in large measure, to the limited vision so many lawyers shared of how to practice law, a vision forged first in law school and reinforced in practice. His work continues to inspire increasing numbers of incredible lawyers and law professors seeking to make the practice of law more humane, more healing, and more fulfilling, both for themselves and for their clients."
--Marjorie A. Silver
Professor of Law, Touro Law Center
Editor of and contributing author to The Affective Assistance of Counsel: Practicing Law as a Healing Profession

"The inspirational Steven Keeva, through this book and his other writings, made it possible and legitimate for me to work as a professional, offering programs bringing contemplative practices to lawyers. May this new edition continue to imbue the legal profession with balance!"
--Douglas Chermak
Law Program Director, Center for Contemplative Mind in Society

"Thanks to Steven Keeva's reporting, we now know so much more about the heart and soul of law, and how the best practice of law combines sharp legal thinking with compassion, creativity, integrity, laughter, and time to enjoy life. Transforming Practices is the best book I've seen anywhere about how to restore the soul of any profession or any worker. Trends may come, statistics may change, but the juicy stories and simple instructions in this book will endure."
