The Inseparability of Professionalism and Personal Satisfaction

Lawrence S. Krieger

Florida State University College of Law

Clinical Law Review, Forthcoming

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.
