The HLS Center on the Legal Profession has been looking at ethical questions for lawyers in today’s new environment. How does law adjust to these changes, asks David Wilkins, the center’s faculty director, “while preserving the core commitment of law as a public profession?” Wilkins, with Ben W. Heineman Jr., Distinguished Senior Fellow at the center and former general counsel of General Electric; and William F. Lee, partner at WilmerHale, lecturer at HLS, and member of the Harvard Corporation, addressed that question and others in their article “Lawyers as Professionals and as Citizens: Key Roles and Responsibilities in the 21st Century”. They presented the paper at an April conference hosted by the center, which was attended by a range of law firm leaders, general counsel and legal academics.
