Summary

When one hour of professionalism credit for lawyers became mandatory in Louisiana several years ago, the majority of an hour of professionalism seemed to be a discussion of the difference between ethics and professionalism. Ethics, in my mind, are primarily concerned with the duties that a lawyer owes to his or her clients, while professionalism is primarily concerned with the relationships between attorneys and their co-counsel, opposing counsel, the court, and the profession.

In any event, an attorney can be safely guided in most circumstances by sound litigation strategy. As a general proposition, the approach most likely to advance the case to a successful conclusion will also be the approach which advances the attorney's own interests, courtesies to opposing counsel, appropriate respect and deference towards the court, and the highest standards and ideals for the profession. The precepts of ethics and professionalism step in to resolve circumstances where such interests might be in conflict or otherwise tend to diverge.
