The Practice of Law can be a Noble Calling.

Published by David Paletta

I consider Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela to be two of the greatest men who have lived in the last 100 years.  I do not believe it is a coincidence they were both lawyers.

In my first blog I wrote that the practice of law has a lot to offer those who are motivated by altruistic goals.  There is no shortage of injustice and suffering around us.  A law degree can be an effective tool to combat injustice and lessen suffering.  I truly believe this.  

Even though we are not destined to be a Gandhi or Mandela, each lawyer has the power to make a positive impact on the lives of others, to stand up for justice, to help lesson suffering, one person at a time. 

To all young lawyers, and to all young people thinking of becoming lawyers, I encourage you to pursue the practice of law as a noble calling.  The lives of Gandhi and Mandela provide us with shining stars to guide us in our Journey to promote the cause of justice everywhere on this planet.
