Abstract

"Thinking like a lawyer" is a phrase familiar to every law student, and the development of these analytical skills are, of course, essential. In this essay, however, I reflect on the value of a more expansive approach to professional formation. I argue that legal education best serves students, the bar, and the society when it takes seriously the importance of moral imagination, interpersonal relationships, and personal wellness.

Keywords: professionalism, ethics, PR, professional responsibility, legal education, Carnegie
