Take a Look at the Definition of Professionalism

The Task Force on Professionalism has come up with a working definition of "Professionalism" that I have included on to this blog, at the very bottom on the page. We have asked around for some input on the definition and have received some comments so far, such as: 'pro bono has no place as a requirement in the definition' and 'doesn't address interaction among lawyers.'

Granted as a definition it is long (complete with disclaimers), but if you would take the time to read the definition and give us any comments that you may have, for instance, what you would change or add, we would love to hear from you.

Thanks and regards,

The definition is too long. It is trying to be everything to everyone. And that is a problem. The definition should reflect what NYCLA wants the profession to be and strive towards that. Law and Lawyering is complex and diverse and most likely NYCLA's membership is diverse. If the definition is all things to all people then is it is nothing to anyone. My two cents.
