A definition of professionalism

I came across another interesting quote in my horribly organized electronic notes that I would like to share; it may be attributed to Lippe the AmLaw optimist or it may have come from an earlier commenter:

Although duties to their clients in particular matters are paramount, lawyers must throughout their careers remain conscious of and committed to the goal of improving the profession and the system of justice. This commitment includes taking personal and professional measures to increase the availability of legal services and abet even-handed and efficient application and administration of the legal system for all segments of society.

Food for thought; if you have any comments or know the source, let me know.
