LEGAL Training Institute deputy director David Lambu has appealed to young lawyers to work with duty, responsibility and respect.  

He emphasised the importance of these ideals that befit lawyers in a profession that society looks on as almost sacred and encouraged the 80 graduates to exercise professionalism.

Lambu was speaking last Thursday at the end of a special course that was aimed to arm the students with the skills needed to enter the legal profession.

The graduates, neatly dressed in their gowns, listened attentively. 

He spoke with wit, humour and encouragement needed by the future legal eagles to represent their profession with dignity, duty, responsibility and respect. 

“Whether you make it or break it, the legal profession depends very much on your sound knowledge and understanding of the Professional Conduct Rule and your conduct as a lawyer in accordance with the said rules.”
