Mr. Marsee is pleased with the progress of the work of the Standing Committee on Professionalism. "In the last three years, the SCOP has accomplished some important goals, including drafting the Bar's Code of Professionalism Expectations," he said. He participated in the editing of this code, which was adopted by the Bar's Board of Governors on Jan. 30, 2015.

The code begins with a definition: “Professionalism is the pursuit and practice of the highest ideals and tenets of the legal profession. It embraces far more than simply complying with the minimal standards of professional conduct. The essential ingredients of professionalism are character, competence, commitment, and civility.”
