Marshall Hall, I don't think there is any risk of me looking at the profession with rose tinted spectacles - the cases of rogue partners and employees and other frauds I have advised on are far too numerous to count, and I have seen some pretty shocking practice of other types including e.g. the most egregious conflicts of interest, but not a vast number of concocted documents of the type currently engaging the attention of the SRA and SDT so extensively. I have had cause to instruct forensic document examiners and had specialist IT advice on occasions, but it is only on a handful of occasions.

One aspect that a researcher might look at is that I think there is rather more support in the USA for lawyers with problems, particularly alcohol and other substance abuse.
