The Inseparability of Professionalism and Personal Satisfaction


Lawrence S. Krieger


Florida State University College of Law


Clinical Law Review, Forthcoming

Abstract:     
This paper addresses the failure of legal education to relate failing professionalism to the problems of depression, addiction, and career dissatisfaction among lawyers. I describe a classroom approach that teaches students about the psychological foundations of well-being, identifies common attorney practices and attitudes that undermine well-being, and further guides students toward meaning and satisfaction in their careers by helping them identify core values. The paper summarizes recent empirical research on law students and general populations as a foundation for the discussion.
