Principles of Professionalism

Today is “Lawyer Professionalism Day” and, not coincidentally, the 266th birthday of the state’s most famous lawyer, Thomas Jefferson.

The Virginia Bar Association’s Commission on Professionalism is rolling out its “Principles of Professionalism” by providing electronic copies of the principles to bar organizations, law schools and law firms to e-mail to attorneys and law students.

In case you haven’t yet seen the aspirational goals adopted by the commission and endorsed by the Supreme Court of Virginia, here they are along with a link to a more detailed description of them in last week’s Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
