Professor Howard Gardner – In 2012, What is ‘Good Work’ in the Law?
Professor of Cognition and Education at Harvard University
The Goodwork Project is a large scale effort to identify individuals and institutions that exemplify good work – work that is excellent in quality, socially responsible, and meaningful to its practitioners – and to determine how best to increase the incidence of good work in our society. After introducing the Project, Gardner will lead a discussion of what is ‘good work’ in the law today, what are the obstacles to achieving it, how can one best overcome those obstacles?
