Abstract

This article published in the Cooley Law Review argues that the law profession and public too often overlook the profession's noble history and foundation. The profession should reconnect with its rich philosophy and sound morality to meet the public's challenge that it regenerate its values and image.

Keywords: professionalism, morality, legal history, noble, values
