No profession is perfect. It is, I guess, those people who strive to uphold the primary purpose for which it is created that makes it a noble one. One of the more famous lines of literature shared repeatedly in law school is this one from Shakespeare’s Henry VI, “The first thing we do is kill all the lawyers.” Not a very good line is it? This one is used as a joke actually.
What I really wanted to say is– Here’s to you Bob! We weren’t close but I believe you’re one of those few old school lawyers that we law students and even newbies should/could look up to. Only a few could actually say that they’ve lived up to their Lawyer’s Oath. You’ll be a hard act to follow.
