Pluralism and Professionalism: The Question of Authority

St. John's Legal Studies Research Paper

Abstract:     
Professionalism initiatives tend to presume that the only sources of authority material to a lawyer's cultivation of professional values are grounded in the law and speak to all lawyers. In reality, many lawyers find meaning and purpose in sources of authority that are particular and extralegal. Expanding our conception of authority will equip lawyers to engage questions of professional identity in new, more powerful ways.
