The legal profession tends to look inward and backward when faced with crisis and uncertainty. Greater advances could be made by looking outward and forward to find in society and culture the causes of and connections with the legal profession’s crises. Doing so would allow the profession to grow with society, solve problems with rather than against the flow of society, and be more attuned to the society the profession claims to serve. The latest in a long line of such backward-looking regulation efforts can be found in the lackluster results of ABA Commission 20/20.
