Revised ABA Standards and the Formation of Lawyer Professional Identity

The American Bar Association’s revisions to accreditation Standard 303 present an opportunity to improve legal education to the benefit of law students, law schools, and the legal profession. Neil Hamilton and Louis Bilionis of the Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership in the Professions outline the new requirements in the first of a two-part Bulletin+ series.

What Does a Lawyer Look Like?

Is it time to update grooming policies in the legal community? With tattoos becoming more mainstream, piercings being more visible, and CROWN Act legislation getting passed, should legal employers revisit what it means to look like a lawyer?

NALP believes in fairness, facts and the power of a diverse community.

We work every day to be the best career services, recruitment, and professional development organization in the world because we want the lawyers and law students we serve to have an ethical recruiting system, employment data they can trust, and expert advisers to guide and support them in every stage of their careers
