Holloran Center

for Ethical Leadership in the Professions

The Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership in the Professions, now in its tenth year, continues to focus on its mission of helping the next generation of leaders form their professional identities with a moral core of responsibility and service to others.  In support of that mission, the Center promotes groundbreaking research by University of St. Thomas School of Law professors, fellows, and students. It also encourages new and innovative courses and materials that address and integrate ethical issues related to the professions and business. Finally, the Center offers lectures, panels, conferences, and continuing education programs that connect ethical theory into practice and policies that touch the professions, businesses, governments, and communities. The 2014-2015 annual report outlines all of the Center’s contributions this past academic year. Check out the 2014-2015 Annual Report here.

William Sullivan, co-director of all five of the Carnegie Foundation's studies of higher education for the professions and co-author of EDUCATING LAWYERS: PREPARATION FOR THE PROFESSION OF LAW (2007),  recently emphasized in an article that:

 "The Holloran Center, long a thought leader on the critical role of professional formation in the development of effective, service oriented lawyers, has responded to this disruption [of the markets for legal services] through several ground-breaking empirical studies that lay out the goals for positive innovation. They detail the competencies beginning lawyers need (including a foundation of an ethical professional identity) in order to succeed in this changing, much less stable professional environment."
