SUMMARY: Analogizing Oz to Law School, this article discusses the role of orientation in the law school curriculum and offers implementation strategies to develop an effective orientation. An effective and comprehensive orientation program for law school would have many goals: it should attempt to construct the profession as a calling; create syntactical, substantive, and pedagogical context; communicate care and model empathy and compassion; cultivate community to promote mutual respect, cultural competence, and interdependence; and confirm student self-confidence.
CULTURAL REFERENCE: The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical fantasy film produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Notable for its use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling, musical score and unusual characters, over the years it has become one of the best known of all films and part of American popular culture. It also featured in cinema what may be for the time the most elaborate use of character make-ups and special effects.
