A 2009 study detailing Palmetto State lawyers' dissatisfaction with the legal profession is not only getting attention within the State Bar but is also drawing kudos nationwide. The study is becoming a model for other state bars that are doing their own assessments of their members' feelings about the legal profession, said Barbara George Barton, a Columbia lawyer who chairs the S.C. Bar's Professional Potential Task Force. And a nationally recognized expert on lawyer retention said she is touting the study as an unusually effective instrument for measuring the depth of lawyer dissatisfaction. "I can say that if I have my way it will have an impact around the country. I have already mentioned it in a blog," said Cynthia Calvert, senior advisor and co-founder of the San Francisco-based nonprofit Project for Attorney Retention.
