Available formats


This is a unique professionalism program, unlike any other legal program, that probes the relationship between the law and human culture, primarily through a review of literature, enhanced through five basic sessions facilitated by course planners David Hostetler and Gray Wilson.

Discussion groups engage with authors ranging from Plato to Darrow in an interactive environment designed to extol but also challenge the essential principles and practices of the legal profession.

Through the prism of the humanities, every lawyer will reflect on the role of the profession beyond the mere rules, regulations, procedures and statutes that define and sometimes confine it.

We would like to thank our Gold Sponsor, Lawyers Mutual, for helping make this program possible.
