In this paper I discuss four "ethical" challenges faced by the legal profession as we enter into a new millennium. I know that these are challenges faced by the profession in the United States. And from my brief stay in Japan, I think that they are challenges faced by your legal profession, as well. In the process of discussing these challenges, I will also discuss some recent developments in the United States regarding legal ethics.
Here are the challenges I will discuss:
- The Challenge of a Unified Legal Profession.
- The Challenge of a Modern Law Firm.
- The Challenge Posed by the Need for Legal Services.
- The Challenge Posed by the Modern Regulatory Environment.
