CONFUCIUS AND LAWYERLY EXCELLENCE
Some years ago, I published a piece entitled
The Analects for Lawyers: Variations Upon Confucian Wisdom, 34 Tex. Tech L. Rev. 933 (2002-2003).
Those of you who find the jurisprudence of legal ethics interesting or even amusing might enjoy this article.
Given the age of the topic, my piece is not that old. I remain uncertain as to whether I’ve really got the legal philosophy of the “Master” completely right. Confucius’s life occurred 551-479 BCE, more or less.
