Dean Rachel Van Cleave on the Future of the Legal Profession

Dean Rachel Van Cleave (Golden Gate) provides her thoughts on the future of the legal profession here.  In this essay, she states:

"I believe that the future of the profession requires all of us, regardless of practice sector or role, to answer the critical existential question of who lawyers are.  Our future will be stronger and brighter if we come together to answer this question collectively and focus on the positive opportunities and valid roles of each sector. 

. . . 

Lawyers are an important symbol of access to justice, fairness, and thoughtful attention to solving problems without violence.  Lawyers are a symbol of the rule of law rather than the rule of men or women."
