A Holiday wish

The rule of law is a very good thing. But how can we expect those who have no access to our legal system to know this? If you have never experienced the benefits that the rule of law provides, then you are probably not going to feel very strongly about its importance in modern society. It is the highest obligation of our legal profession to assure access to the rule of law for all citizens, not just for those with sufficient financial means to hire counsel. Just as no one is above the law, neither is anyone beneath it. Pro bono lawyers know this. That's why they work tirelessly with no expectation of personal gain. During this holiday season, may all pro bono lawyers everywhere experience the happiness of knowing how deeply we appreciate their selflessly kind spirits.
