A Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section committee is considering a proposal to scrub so-called “Z” words — “zeal,” “zealous,” and “zealously,” — from the Bar rule book.

“It’s not just the legal profession, people in general relate someone who is ‘zealous’ to someone who is a zealot,” said RPPTL Professionalism and Ethics Committee Chair Andy Sasso. “And I don’t know anyone who would say that someone being a zealot is positive.”
