The Abraham Lincoln Institute for the Study of Leadership and Public Policy at Lincoln Memorial University exists to increase public awareness of the contributions of Abraham Lincoln and their relevance to the present day. Lincoln was perhaps the most ethical person ever to serve as President of the United States. While many of our presidents have been members of the bar, Lincoln is notable for having practiced law full-time for decades before he entered the presidency. Like all of us, however, Lincoln was not perfect. Perhaps his greatest moral misstep was taking on something commonly called the Matson Slave Case. We will review that notorious case, then discuss how the issues it raises are still with us today, as reflected in several of Tennessee’s Rules of Professional Conduct.
