Abstract
This is one of six articles collected into a Special Issue of the Law Teacher on Ethics in Legal Education, published in 1999.
Nina Tarr presents the United States experience of requiring ethics within all JD programmes and the limited value of the exercise in many law schools. It is perceived as an irritation by many students and she applies that experience to the suggestions as to how legal ethics might be incorporated into the UK curriculum. In particular she addresses the need to enable students to develop a reflective approach to their own values and the way those values impact upon both their studies and any aspirations they may have to practise law.
