“There’s too easy a disparaging notion that lawyers are really in the business for making money and it’s certainly not my experience. My experience of most lawyers is that even those who are working in fields which are to do with commerce or who are in the corporate world, know why a strong system matters and why protecting the rights of individuals are important in a democracy. They see it as they try and do business with other parts of the world, where legal structures are fragile, where there are no independent judges, where independent lawyering  goes punished by the state. 

We have to absolutely protect the independence of our profession, the highest of standards there are, the right to legal aid by defendants, even if we’re operating in fields where legal aid is not going to be an issue, but we need to have it there to ensure the system remains strong and just and fair. That’s what JUSTICE is about, it’s about raising issues where we see erosion is going to take place and to advise where we see that law can be bettered.

And this is why it’s those who really know something about why law matters really have to dig deep and protect it, protect JUSTICE, because if we’re not going to guard it, who will?”
