CBA Record February-March 2019

Thompson: Lawyer-leaders consider options. Lincoln: “I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors; and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views.” Thompson: Lawyer-leaders act at all times with moral courage. Lincoln: “It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong,” and “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” Thompson’s book serves as a prompt to encourage law students and lawyers to acquire the skills and discernment to lead like Lincoln. Although Thompson does not say so, real danger lies in ignoring the leadership qualities employed by Lincoln. If done well, following Lincoln’s way of leading offers a path not only to avoid dangerous results, but also to achieve a great deal of good. Imagine the possibilities! Rehearing: “He was open to all impressions and influences, and gladly profited by the teachings of events and circumstances, no matter how adverse or unwelcome.” – Horace Greely on Lincoln.
