Professionalism:  A High Standard of Practice

Members of the Santa Clara County Bar Association have practiced law with a level of professionalism that goes well beyond the requirements of the State Bar mandated Code of Professional Conduct. To make that level of professionalism the standard for practice in Santa Clara County, the SCCBA in 1992 adopted a Code of Professionalism  to apply to all lawyers who practice in Santa Clara County.  The local federal and state courts adopted the Code to use as guidelines of practice in their courtrooms.  The SCCBA Professionalism Committee exists to ensure that the Code is actively used by attorneys practicing in Santa Clara County and to review and comment on State Bar formal ethic opinions before they are finalized.

"...all lawyers are encouraged to zealously represent their clients within the highest bounds of professionalism. The legal profession must strive for the highest standards of lawyer behavior to elevate and enhance our service to justice."

-- SCCBA Code of Professionalism, Preamble
