No profession on the planet manifests power, knowledge, and wisdom the way lawyers do. The world's governmental powers are the result of lawyers' daily work. The planet's conflicts, between powerful private and public interests, are adjudicated via the lawyer class. We represent the awesome power of the state and the might of billion dollar mega-corporations; yet we also provide the dignity of representation to the low-income housing tenant facing forcible eviction. All while being bound by a strict code of ethics rigorously enforced.
We are the gatekeepers to justice in all its forms - whether in the boardroom or the courtroom, we make it happen. We make it legal.
It's about time we had a research and collaboration tool worthy of our profession.
