This is a new article on law student professional identity training by Professor Michalyn Steele (BYU) and available at 2018 BYU L. Rev. 1429. The full title of the article is Cultivating Professional Identity and Resilience Through the Study of Federal Indian Law and can also be found at SSRN here. From the abstract:
For purposes of this Essay, I consider how the doctrinal courses might contribute to the various professional formation learning outcomes. Specifically, I examine how one doctrinal course, Federal Indian Law, might serve as a representative model for ways of incorporating purposeful learning outcomes to foster the professional identity formation of law students. In Part II of this Essay, I argue that the study of Federal Indian Law presents an important opportunity to teach the principles of personal and professional resilience to law students.
