Survey results: Should lawyers be less business minded?

That is the question I asked myself after tallying the latest blog poll. It appears that 63% of respondents believe that lawyers today are too business-minded. I find that striking, especially in today’s economy when people are struggling to make a living. Is it unprofessional for lawyers to be concerned about your business objectives? I would think not, but I would love to hear from some of the respondents who think otherwise.

Rounding out the poll, 18% of respondents think that lawyers today are too academic with the remaining 18% responding that lawyers have a achieved a good balance of both business and academic concerns.

Take the time to vote on the latest poll too (on the left of the screen). Thanks.
