Renew

Posted by Timothy P. PolishanApr 13, 2022

The Law, the legal system and the legal community must constantly renew themselves.

This duty overlaps opportunities for other broad goods in our culture.

It's a perpetual balancing act—

balancing the paths of fairness, freedom and safety.

Lawyers, judges, and lawmakers must always be willing to rethink even their most basic assumptions.

They must welcome dissent and speak truth that needs to be heard—

especially when it's most difficult to hear.
