What were these lawyers thinking? They clearly weren't...

Fans of Jane Austen will remember Lizzie Bennett's father saying that it was their role to laugh at their neighbours when they did something foolish, and to be laughed at by the neighbours in their turn. I agree with the sentiment. In this case, I agree with how it applies to the legal profession. We just can't take it all too seriously. We have to chuckle at the foolishness when it happens, but try to make sure we ourselves don't land in hot water for stupid actions.

Check out this article on a site called www.abovethelaw.com, which talks about how social media has alerted us - that is, people in general, not just other lawyers - about the silliness of some members of the bar. The article is American but could easily be Canadian. We're all human.
