As I have mentioned before, the ABA made significant changes to the standards for legal education at their mid-year meeting, including adding a new requirement for professional identity training. Neil Hamilton has just informed me that the Holloran Center will have a workshop on professional identity training on May 23-24. (Here) 60 schools have already signed up.
Also, Neil and Louis Bilionis have just published a book on professional identity development for law faculty. Law Student Professional Development and Formation: Bridging Law School, Student, and Employer Goals. I will have some comments about this book in a few days.
Finally, a reminder that I have published a book on professional identity development for students, which contains a plethora of exercises to help them develop this skill. Developing Your Professional Identity: Creating Your Inner Lawyer.
