Do lawyers earn gross profits? That is, do lawyers earn "too much"? A recent survey indicates that a majority of people think that lawyers charge too much, and the percentage of people who think lawyers charge too much has increased sharply in recent years, but is the public right? The Association of American Law Schools ("AALS") Section on Professional Responsibility organized this symposium to give us some data on that question. At the live program, held on January 7, 1994, the entire audience consisted of law professors who teach and write about professional responsibility. In this written symposium, we hope to broaden our audience to include lawyers, law students, and other professors.
