I think it’s probably safe to as

I think it’s probably safe to assume that the request for “MORE Lawyers” probably means “MORE of the better kind.”

Dick, I have to say that I don’t agree that lawyers’ self-selection, education, and training “conspire” to ensure we get bad lawyers. I decided to be a lawyer because I wanted to “fight the man” and practice public interest and social justice law. While in law school, I met many incredibly motivated, interesting people who wanted to be forces for good and benefit society as part of their work (even the ones who wanted to specialize in areas I found dull). I never met a single person who I thought was in it to make a small group of people even richer. As part of our education and training, we were constantly taught and reminded again and again of our social responsibility.

I think it’s simplistic and inaccurate to stereotype the entire profession as hacks who are out to make a quick buck instead of doing anything useful.
