If a man is qualified both as a lawyer and as a certified public accountant, is there any reason to prohibit him from practicing both professions at the same time? The Professional Ethics Committee of the ABA thinks so, but the author of this article, a lawyer-CPA himself, strongly disagrees. He argues that the Committee's position is not in the public interest, not a proper interpretation of the Canons of Ethics, and perhaps even unconstitutional.
