A Profile in Courage

Posted by Jeff Lipshaw

I know Mike provides a daily source of lawyers behaving badly, but I thought I would interrupt by posting a video of an act of a lawyer that, to this day, gives me goose bumps.  

I'm not sure any of us ever encounter an evil like Senator McCarthy, even though sometimes it feels like we do.

I'm also not sure if we ever have to exhibit the kind of courage and resourceful and essential decency under fire that Joseph Welch did, but I think every lawyer should watch this every once in a while just to recharge the moral batteries.
