Most can readily agree with Professor Boothe-Perry that lawyers routinely act badly, and that they do so with a regularity that is, alarmingly, on the rise. The question of what to do about it is a more vexing one. Professor Boothe-Perry suggests that the problem can be nipped in the bud, as it were, through the imposition of non-academic honor codes at law schools.  In this way, she argues, attorneys-in-training will learn how to behave themselves before they join the bar and will behave themselves ever after.
