William Bauer: More than Just a Decent Man


Judge William Bauer of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals shares his perspectives about mentoring and the source of his greatest hope about the future of the profession.  He talks about how the rule of law as the bedrock of our society and explains that lawyers represent those known to be guilty because everyone, even the accused, have rights protected by the Constitution.  He explains that if only some individuals, rather than all, have rights protected by the Constitution, then we’re all “doomed.”  How does he most hope to be remembered? “As a decent man.”
