Publication Date: 2015
From the ABA's Standing Committee on Professionalism, this book collects the insights of more than 20 top authorities on the forces that are shaping a far different future for the legal profession in this nation and across the world. Beyond considering what the profession of law must do to remain strong, viable, and in position to define its own destiny, this book makes the case that for the legal profession to endure, lawyer professionalism must endure as well. The lawyer's commitment to public service and access to justice will be paramount in an era when many citizens are legally underserved. And preserving professional identity will be more essential than ever if new lawyers are to exercise independent judgment while dedicating themselves to the rule of law and the cause of justice, in keeping with the profession s core values.
