The Lawyer for Justice
By John W. Anderson
“TF 1 CAN send out men construct! vtjy
X minded who will leave the machinery
of justice better than they found it I
will have rendered a service.” Dean
William G. Hale, of the University school
of law, thus summarized his idea of the
graduate which the school is trying to
“Practically all law reaches the people
through lawyers. Because of this enor
mous responsibility the lawyer who is a
credit to the bar must have an absolutely j
firm ethical and moral as well as intel
lectual basis,” the dean said.
“Too often people get the impression
that only the judge is the administrator !
of justice,” the dean continued, “but |
this is not true.” The ordinary person
knows little about the law and must go to
a lawyer for advice on all legal matters,
so that in all its most far reaching ram
ifications the people get the law through
the lawyer. The character of the law,
as administered, then must depend largely
upon the character of the lawyer who in
terprets it. “The law does not apply
itself,” Dean Hale said.
“If the school does not send out
men imbued with the idea that they are
public servants it is not meeting its
obligation to the public and the state,”
he continued. “Every lawyer is a pub
lic servant, a part of the machinery of
justice in all its work.”
Dean Hale sat back in his chair and
talked slowly and thoughtfully, choosing
the right words to express these ideas
which mean much to him and to all other
men who are trying to send out lawyers
into the field who will leave the ma
chinery of justice better for their having
There are two purposes in insiting up
on a thorough foundation for the lawyer,
the dean said. The first is that the man
who is to advise properly under the pres
ent social and economic conditions must
have a thorough educational basis. In
order to properly interpret the law he
must understand the conditions under
which the law is to bo administered. “It
is hard to keep the law abreast of the
rapid progress of the times. The lawyer
must know that laws are made to serve
human needs and as those needs change,
laws must be made to conform.”
The lawyer must be a man of vision,

The second reason for the long and
hard term of preparation before admit
tance to the bar is that it offers the best
possible safeguard of the morals and
ethics of the calling, the dean continued.
“Persons seldom appreciate anything
given to them. And a higher apprecia
tion of the duties and responsibilities of
the profession must inevitably grow out
of longer period of service demanded to
Once in, it is very hard to get rid of
persons detrimental to the profession,
the dean said. Therefore the best way
is to eliminate them before they are ad
mitted to the bar. The long service be
fore admittance makes sure of a better
moral product. It secures men able to
serve and men who want to serve—the
best possible combination.

encouraging example of the preparation
law students are receiving for the part
they will play after graduation* the dean
said. The law school is the most ap
propriate school for such a system, he be
lieves, because every member of the bar
feels that he is responsible for the acts
of every other member. The act of one
lawyer reflects directly upon the rest
of the bar.
The dean believes that the lawyer is
much more a free agent than the follower
of most other professions.Even though
the lawyer receives a fee for his services
he is really not a hireling. His client
pays him for advice and it is, in fact,
the lawyer who directs and the client
