The article presents a response to James White's article, "Maiming the Cubs," which expressed Professor White's skepticism of the conclusions reached in Kennon Sheldon's and Lawrence Krieger's study, "Does Legal Education Have Undermining Effects on Law Students? Evaluating Changes in Motivation, Values and Well-Being." This article views Professor White's critique as a perfect example of the kind of "thinking like a lawyer" that Krieger and Sheldon describe as a major source of stress in law students. The article presents the author's own vision of what "thinking like a lawyer" should entail, including teaching and emphasizing empathy, concern for others, self-examination, and personal responsibility.
