Lawyers setting a good example | Updated: 2013-08-21 23:02

Both society and the government should learn from lawyers who try to safeguard the spirit of the law, said an article in the Southern Metropolis Daily (excerpts below).

Lawyers have played a prominent role in a number of recent cases by urging judicial authorities to match their deeds to their words.

Thanks to their expertise and social status, their efforts, in many cases, have actually paid off.

To some extent, lawyers have taken on an important role as representatives of the people. They are also motivating authorities to abide by the rule of law.

The law is not only printed on paper. The lawyers have set a good example in translating its spirit into real action.
