Today I celebrate 30 years since my admission to the State Bar of California.
Like every year, I will celebrate this anniversary by re-reading Hoffman’s “Fifty Resolutions in Regard to Professional Deportment”, which is actually the resolution #50. By this act I will consecrate myself for yet another year bearing the heavy office of attorney and counselor at law.
Hoffman may be old (1836) but he never goes out of style. As I prepare for my new gig teaching professional responsibility, I don’t know that our current rules of professional responsibility represent that much of an improvement. So I commend them to you.
