Oak Park Resident Authors Article in Illinois Bar Journal
Cheryl I. Niro, a resident of Oak Park, is the author of “The Discontented Lawyer: A Call for a New Professionalism,” an article which appears in the November 2012 issue of the Illinois Bar Journal, the monthly magazine of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA).
Niro is a principal in RobinsonNiro LLC, of Chicago. In the article, she writes that the personality traits of lawyers, like the preference for thinking, rationality, unemotional objective analysis, may be the source of interpersonal problems, but they may also be helpful, even necessary, in the practice of law. She writes that what lawyers can do is appreciate the choices they make as professionals that more directly honor their humanity.
The 33,000-member ISBA (isba.org), with offices in Springfield and Chicago, provides professional services to Illinois lawyers, and education and services to the public through a website (illinoislawyerfinder.com), a cable television program (“Illinois Law”), consumer brochures, and distribution of legal information.
