dc.description.abstract Professionalism is composed of two essential elements: valid theoretical principles and effective application of those principles in the practice of law. This Article focuses on professional principles in practice. The discussion will be primed by review of several experiences of the author during his brief tenure in the Navy JAG. These experiences, which are loosely historical, are designed to take advantage of what philosophers George Lakoff and Mark Johnson call "Philosophy in the Flesh." They persuasively argue that metaphors-word pictures-are powerful philosophical teaching and learning tools. As Aristotle proclaimed, "[T]he greatest thing by far is to be a master ofmetaphor[s]." If the metaphor is the medium, then the goal is to open a constructive dialogue between the parallel universes of military and civilian legal education and practice. We should expect to both reaffirm and enrich our respective professionalism. Certainly, that is the experience of the civilian bar in drawing on the strength of the military bar. This review will highlight several significant advances that should provide us both a platform and an impetus for further development. en_US
