Abstract

This paper discusses:

-The need for law schools to use curriculum as a site for positive interventions to support student psychological well-being.

-The potential for law school interventions to impact on the psychological well-being of the profession.

-Reflective practice as a possible tool for promoting psychological well-being in law school and the profession because it provides a way of coping with ‘indeterminate zones’ of experience.
