As a lawyer you have a role in the dynamics of law. Law is always evolving and as a lawyer you have a duty to contribute to these dynamics for the benefit of your client, but also for the benefit of society, because the lawyer should be the guard dog of the rule of law. You have to be brave enough to be stubborn and creative to point out existing unknown routes or to explore new ones. So if we cannot find a route we make one.
