Today, the Phi Delta Phi International Legal Fraternity, founded in 1869to promote a higher standard of professional ethics, sponsored a discussion with Colorado Second Judicial District Judge and New York Times contributor Morris B. Hoffman.  Judge Hoffman spoke about hot topics in legal ethics, including the new Canon 5 that encourages judges to be "active in their communities" and the related problem of lawyers who are "true believers" in their causes.
