Originally delivered as a talk at an AALS clinical conference, the author urges teachers in the law clinic to feel and express emotion if they wish to teach students to value and work well with emotional information. The author further argues that clinicians must tend their own roots in community and model this to students if they are to convey the importance of client community context to good outcomes.
