There is a growing movement to create successful, ethical, well-rounded and practice ready legal professionals both in terms of their content knowledge and their mental well-being. As a Legal Teaching “profession” it is incumbent on us to answer this call in a responsive, creative, integrated, well researched and evaluated manner. This paper provides a suggested and evaluated framework for how this call can be met without resorting to “add on” subjects (no matter how well-intentioned), that stand outside the “normal” law school curriculum. Instead of partitioning well-being and professionalism into separate silos, it is suggested that all efforts must be made to integrate the seeds, thoughts, and actions of ethics, well-being, and professionalism into as many aspects of each of our programs as possible.
