In this program, Stuart will discuss the buried treasure that is Professionalism. An area of the code that is often overlooked by attorneys but serves as the Preamble to the rules and is vital to the practice of law. He will use the comments from the Georgia Code which may slightly differ from the ABA code but substantively the issues discussed can apply to other states.
