This Comment reviews the shrinking presence of lawyers in the arena of macrocosmic public policy. It also discusses the declining statesmanship of lawyer-politicians as part of a general decline of lawyer professionalism in the face of social and economic pressures tending to undermine lawyer professionalism. Furthermore, it addresses how the net impact of these factors undermines the potential of lawyers to act as a positive force for public policy dispute resolution.
