dc.description.abstractIt was natural that the general trend of public opinion in this country in favor of codification, as against unwritten law, should of late years turn the attention of the bar to the question whether the rules of legal ethics ought not to be put in an authoritative form. In a number of the States steps have been taken in this direction, and the last Summer has given us a code stamped with the approval of the American Bar Association. It is the work of a strong committee, which has proceeded slowly and carefully. The task assigned to them was no easy one. It was that of definition and selection. Omnis definitio periculosa est; and to select means to exclude-always a difficult thing to do to general satisfaction, where questions of morals are concerned.
