NC State Bar Journal: “Three Uncles at the Bar”

The North Carolina State Bar Journal has published an expanded version of the essay, “Three Uncles at the Bar,” that I wrote on this site about a year ago.

The new version of the essay features a more thorough discussion of the ways each of three uncles illustrated the idea of professional identity. Though situated in the context of the legal profession, these ideas translate easily to other professional contexts, including—of course—the noble profession of business that my students at Wake Forest are pursuing.

The North Carolina State Bar Journal is the professional journal of attorneys in the state of North Carolina and is sent each quarter to more than 28,000 licensed attorneys.
