Lawyer Professionalism in the 21st Century


The environment within which legal services are supplied has witnessed change in recent times. This has raised the question as to whether a corresponding shift has ensued in ‘lawyer professionalism’.

This article seeks to catalogue what has traditionally formed the accepted understanding of (lawyer) professionalism, as a springboard for inquiry into whether the parameters of lawyer professionalism have indeed shifted.
