The Development of Professional Identity

1st Annual Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers Conference

September 27th, 2012 to September 29th, 2012

Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers hosted its first annual conference, The Development of Professional Identity in Legal Education: Rethinking Learning and Assessment, September 27-29, 2012, at the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. This was a working conference of two-three person teams from the participating ETL consortium schools. It focused on developing expertise around the formation of professional identity in legal education.

Through interactive presentations from legal as well as other professional disciplines, this inaugural conference will enable ETL consortium schools to improve curricula, forms of learning, and assessment in order to foster students' growth in professional identity as a key outcome of an integrated law school education.

Due to extremely limited space, the working nature of the conference and because the primary purpose is for consortium schools to collaborate, attendance is currently by invitation only.
