This definition is based on the definition of "reasonable belief" or "reasonably believes" in Rule 1.0(i) of the ABA's Model Rules of Professional Conduct, modified to emphasize that the range of possible reasonable beliefs regarding a matter may be broad -- limited for the purposes of this rule by beliefs that are unreasonable. Whether the tribunal is likely to be misled or the opposing party is likely to suffer prejudice depends on the nature of the case, the importance and probable tenor of the lawyer’s testimony, and the probability that the lawyer’s testimony will conflict with that of other witnesses.

In the coverage of materials in a book on legal ethics it is not easy to achieve a right balance as regards issues mainly involved in the practice of law and those dealing with the teaching and learning of legal ethics. The responsibility of each health educator is to aspire to the highest possible standards of conduct and to encourage the ethical behavior of all those with whom they work. The human species is strong only insofar as it takes advantage of the innate, adaptive, learning faculties that its physiological structure makes possible. (Wiener 1954, pp. 57–58, italics in the original) Given the physiology of human beings, it is possible for them to take in a wide diversity of information from the external world, access information about conditions and events within their own bodies, and process all that information in ways that constitute reasoning, calculating, wondering, deliberating, deciding and many other intellectual activities.

Do you think that the lawyer should have been disbarred? He refers to writings in 1615 of Sir John Davies, a future chief justice, in which Davies argued that the lawyer's vocation - the word is noted - placed the lawyer above the dependent r�le of wage-earner, and beyond the mere pursuit of money, for his fees were not "'duties certaine ...
