Clarence Darrow - the journeyman
lessons for the modern lawyer

Atticus Finch

If I have been charitable in my judgments of my fellow man; if I have tried to help him as best I could; if I have done my utmost to truly understand him, I know why I have taken this course - I could not help it.

I could have had no comfort or peace of mind if I had acted any other way. I have been interested in the study of man, and the motives that move and control his life.

I have rejoiced with him, and have grieved with him, I have followed my instincts and sought to rescue the suffering when I could.

Clarence Seward Darrow

The Buddhists have a term they use to describe the process of comfortably meshing our core values with the way we make our living. They refer to it as the process of finding a right livelihood.

The values that Clarence Darrow meshed with his role as a lawyer came from many sources. He was a philosopher, scientist, sociologist, historian, and theologian. Darrow in no way resembled the single-dimensional linear-thinking attorney that seems to be almost cliché and epidemic in the ’90s. He was not the abridged version of a lawyer. His endless effort to understand and appreciate the world outside the four walls of his law office contributed to his legendary ability as an advocate. More importantly, his effort contributed to his arriving at a right livelihood.
