Lawyers must act loyally and ethically not only for the sake of their clients and courts but also to uphold the integrity and reputation of the profession. 

Today, 91 lawyers and one legal procurator received their warrant in a ceremony presided by justice minister Bonnici, Chief Justice Silvio Camilleri, Advocate General Peter Grech, and President of the Chamber of Advocates George Hyzler.

While welcoming them to the family of lawyers, Hyzler told his new colleagues that the profession is ruled by strict ethical standards and advised them to respect clients, courts and the profession itself.

The chief justice and Attorney General reminded the new lawyers to remain updated and to treat their colleagues with respect and maturity.

Camilleri also underlined the importance of seeking advice from other lawyers.

On his part, Bonnici said "geniuses are a rarity but everybody can be well prepared," adding that lawyers must act correctly and righteously at all times.
