This examination of the legal profession, written by a leading US lawyer, offers guidelines for a renewed professionalism among attorneys. It argues that most lawyers have lost touch with the idea that they belong to a public profession, and that the lawyer's responsibility is not simply to the client, or to the highest fee obtainable, but to the court. The bar association is seen as a trade union for lawyers, with the public as the loser.
