CONFLICT RESOLUTION by Mahatma Gandhi, the Lawyer

CONFLICT RESOLUTION by Mahatma Gandhi, the Lawyer


 

“I had learnt the true practice of law. I had learnt to find the better side of human nature and to enter men’s hearts. I realized the true function of a lawyer was to unite parties riven asunder. The lesson was so indelibly burnt into me, that a large part of my time during the twenty years of my practice as a lawyer was occupied in bringing about private compromises of hundreds of cases. I lost nothing thereby – not even money, certainly not my soul.”

-        Mahatma Gandhi, 1927

(The Law and the Lawyers, chap. 12, p. 45)
