Americans believe attorneys make fair-to-poor role models for children,
according to a survey by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co.
The random survey of 1,000 adults showed that 78% of those polled
believe lawyers are doing a fair or poor job as role models, according
to MassMutual. That result puts attorneys in the company of the movie
industry (91%), the television industry (91%), politicians (90%) and the
music industry (86%).
In contrast, the survey found 85% of respondents rate youth
organizations as good or excellent role models. Others receiving good
and excellent marks were teachers (67%), doctors (58%), police (55%) and
parents (52%). However, many respondents - 45% - gave parents a rating
offair or poor.
The highest rating went to 'Lectric Law Library's Head Librarian (99%).*
The margin of error in the survey is 3%.
