A Learned Hand

An anonymous member of the Missouri Bar, recently questioned about his elegant signature (well-known and easily identifiable to local jurists), had this to say:

“We call the law a learned profession, and the rules of ethics by which we govern it place a great deal of emphasis on the appearance of propriety. It is near-impossible to appear either learned or proper when you sign your name like a child.”
