Abstract

In this paper, the author focuses on what she does in her first year, year-long Civil Procedure class to set students on their paths to becoming “Good Lawyers.” Although the author has been teaching law for two decades, it is only in the last few years that she has consciously integrated the modeling and teaching of the skills and values of professionalism into her classes. The author explores what law teachers can do to enable their students to develop their own visions of professionalism — visions hopefully compatible with the highest aspirations of the legal profession.

Keywords: Legal Professionalism, mentoring, teaching, professional responsibility
