In 1990, the Supreme Court of Georgia issued an Aspirational Statement on Professionalism setting forth general and specific aspirational ideals of our profession. The Court wrote, “As professionals, we need aspirational ideals to help bind us together in a professional community.” The Aspirational Statement on Professionalism is a beginning list of the ideals of our profession. It is primarily illustrative. The Court’s purpose is not to regulate, and certainly not to provide a basis for discipline, but rather to assist the Bar’s efforts to maintain a professionalism that can stand against the negative trends of commercialization and loss of community. It is the Court’s hope that Georgia’s lawyers, judges, and legal educators will use the following aspirational ideals to reexamine the justifications of the practice of law in our society and to consider the implications of those justifications for their conduct. The complete text of the Aspirational Statement on Professionalism follows the text of Â Lawyer’s Creed and is found here.
