Summary
The occupation of lawyer used to command immediate respect and trust in our society. Today, however, the profession has come under suspicion and is the butt of many jokes. Is the lure of financial reward and legal competition distorting the practice of law? Has greed overtaken the quest for fairness? How can the legal profession regulate its behavior? This program addresses these and other questions about the role and integrity of lawyers in our society with Roberta Cooper Ramo, President of the American Bar Association; Anthony Kronman, Dean of the Yale Law School; and Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
