To me, Integrity is the practice of being honest and showing a consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions. It is perhaps the most important principle of leadership and dependent on integrity because it demands truthfulness and honesty. Integrity means telling the truth even if the truth is ugly. Better to be honest than to delude others, because then you are probably deluding yourself, too.
People do not hold themselves to the standards they should. They choose to take the easy way out instead of taking responsibility for themselves. Not only have people lost integrity, but America has too. This very nation was built on standards of integrity. Without the Founding Fathers willingness to stand against prejudice people; America would not have the very same freedoms it portrays now. They are a prime example of integrity, individually and together as one. Each person had ideas and spoke freely about them until as a group, they all came to an agreement on one sole purpose and idea. People and groups of today are not willing to put forth the effort to ensure peace and contentment, which is what integrity should uphold. Too many people feel pressure to conform to standards and values that are not of their own. People settle for sloppy seconds when they can put effort and desire in, to gain and achieve integrity. “You make the best of the situation, no matter the cost, and move forward.” says Gordon B. Hinckley. To develop integrity for the future America needs to look back at their roots to see what went wrong.
Honesty is a key characteristic of a business because it sets the tone for the kind of work culture that you want to create, provides consistency in workplace behavior, and builds loyalty and trust in customers and prospects. Having integrity means you are true to yourself and would do nothing that demeans or dishonors you. Honesty is when you speak the truth and act truthfully. Many children think honesty means you ‘don’t tell a lie’ and that is definitely part of being honest. But honesty means more than not lying. A more complete definition of honesty shows that an honest person doesn’t do things that are morally wrong. It’s about being real with yourself and others about who you are, what you want and what you need to live your most authentic life. Honesty promotes openness, empowers us and enables us to develop consistency in how we present the facts. Lying is probably one of the most common wrong acts that we carry out, so it’s worth spending time thinking about it.
Most people would say that lying is always wrong, except when there’s a good reason for it which means that it’s not always wrong! But even people who think lying is always wrong have a problem. Consider the case where telling a lie would mean that 10 other lies would not be told. If 10 lies are worse than 1 lie then it would seem to be a good thing to tell the first lie, but if lying is always wrong then it’s wrong to tell the first lie.
Master critical thinking, strong reasoning and analytical skills. The knowledge and skills gained from studying law facilitate students to analyse both sides of complex situations or problems and to devise the best solution based on strong reasoning and critical thinking. Your public speaking skills will also be tested time and time again as a law student. Building excellent communication and public speaking skills is an essential part of your success as a future lawyer. It’s also important to be able to write clearly and persuasively. All of this should be needed to make a good law student because law is a very important program and this program can help you in life. I chose this program because I wanted to be a civil citizen and know my rights to protect myself against others who do or don’t know their rights.
That’s why the law program is very important, and is why you should be a good student in that program. While it is true that most lawyers have a basic awareness of their country’s laws, the idea that any lawyer could know every law verbatim is impossible. This means that legislatures write general law, and judges interpret those laws in specific cases, thereby creating rules for subsequent matters to follow. Lawyers are in a unique position to help individuals, groups, and organizations with their legal problems and further the public good. Public interest lawyers champion legal causes for the greater good of society and help those in need of legal assistance who might not otherwise be able to afford a lawyer.
A lawyer seeks a result advantageous to the client but consistent with requirements of honest dealings with others. As an evaluator, a lawyer acts by examining a client’s legal affairs and reporting about them to the client or to others. There is, however, no rule that requires a lawyer to know what the truth is. The client tells the lawyer his version of the facts. Lawyers shouldn’t lie, but they don’t have to fact-check their clients. The lawyer is skeptical of the client’s story, but he’s under no obligation to fact-check the client. The judge is biased in favor of the lying lawyer and/or lawyer’s client. The judge accepts the lie because by doing so it allows the judge to find the lie to be a “fact” upon which the judge can issue the ruling the judge desires to make. The judge doesn’t care about being lied to.
Nothing I write is legal advice. If you are asking whether a lawyer lying is a crime, no, it generally isn’t. If you are asking whether a lawyer may lie to you and trick you in a case, no, they may not. Regardless, lawyers are, under the ethical rules, required to be honest in their communications, as lawyers. My own definition of integrity is doing the right thing, to be honest and honor your values and morals. Having integrity helps you become a better person and have a healthy lifestyle. As humans it is in our nature to be tempted to do the wrong things such as lie, cheat, and steal. But why do we do these things? Because it is the easy route. As humans we have become lazy looking for the easiest way to make money then we lie to protect ourselves or the ones we love. We cheat to make our lives easier. That’s why we can not trust one another because we know what we are capable of doing. We come up with all these insecurities and questions. Are we good people? Can I trust my co-workers? Questions like this can be avoided if people had integrity if they honored their word if they did the right thing and not be corrupted by other that lack discipline. As a soldier Integrity is one of the army values it means to do the right thing all the time even when no one is looking and even when you are not at work.
