This article addresses the question of how to determine guidelines that set professional values for law students. In the article, the author describes her law school seminar class that focuses on lawyers' values, lives, and work and helps students explore four particular questions: 1) what are the sources of lawyers' meaning and satisfaction, as well as stress; 2) in what ways do law schools and the profession transmit professional values and attitudes and create among law students a commitment to those values; 3) what values and attitudes do law students need to cultivate personally to find meaning and satisfaction in their professional lives and how do they protect them in the face of potentially conflicting values; and 4) what potential does legal education have to prepare students to flourish as professionals.
