In this article, I present an approach to stimulating reflective writing that may interest law teachers looking to raise issues of professional values and clinicians seeking an alternative to the use of open-ended journal writing. The students whose experience will be described were enrolled in an experimental course on the legal profession, but the method employed may work equally well in a variety of clinical settings, whether externship or in-house clinics, or for that matter in other law school courses.
