About This Course
What does the term "professionalism" mean to you? Do you think there has
been a "deterioration" of professionalism since you became a lawyer? If yes, how
and why? If not, what do you consider the most important factor that has
prevented, or is preventing, "deterioration"
What does the term "unprofessionalism" mean to you? Do you consider that
term to be synonymous with "unprofessional conduct"? Do you perceive a
difference between "misconduct" and "unprofessional" conduct?
What is the difference between mandating professionalism and prohibiting
unprofessionalism (or misconduct)-- i.e., the difference between mandating what's
good and prohibiting what's bad? Is it like asking what's the difference between the
floor and the ceiling -- i.e., between a mandatory minimum and an aspirationally
ideal maximum? Is there a methodology for analyzing and solving what may appear
to be a legal-ethics problem?
