While the most self-serving among us give the profession a bad name and justify nearly every bad lawyer joke, most of us became lawyers because we genuinely want to help people. You need only speak to a class of first-year law students to get a sense of the depth of their desire to have a positive impact on the world. They want to protect the environment, help the downtrodden and defend the Constitution. They want to promote the common good and serve those who need their help. Their enthusiasm is enough to restore even the most devout cynic’s faith in humanity.July 6, 2018 0 0 0
