Justice O'Connor Speaks At U-W
Laramie, Wy – U-S Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor today urged attorneys to practice civility and provide free counsel for the poor to help restore integrity to their profession.
The nation's first female Supreme Court justice spoke to a standing-room only crowd of more than 700 at the University of Wyoming Fine Arts Center.
She says at one time, Americans actually trusted and respected lawyers. O'Connor said a decline in professionalism is partly responsible for that NO longer being the case.
