Summary This paper focuses on the values that underpin legal practitioners' behaviour. In a globalising legal profession information about the values bases' of lawyers is critical to understanding the ways in which a "justice agenda" (arguably, a primary responsibility of the profession) may be sustained into the 21st century. However, there has been a dearth of research into the value systems of lawyers or law students. This paper attempts to investigate what values are characteristic of the mass of Australian lawyers in their last year of law school. It is part of a larger longitudinal study, now nearing completion, which aims to provide longitudinal information about the value sets of these same law students, as they become early-career lawyers and to understand how their values develop or degrade over time.
