Editorial Reviews

Review

Seigel has captured the essence of the pitfalls, moral short-comings, and missteps which lawyers may create for themselves during the course of a career. The stories contained in this work are compelling, instructive, and witty. I had the pleasure of working with Professor Seigel when he was second in command at the U.S. Attorney's Office. Mike led by example, and his message was clear - always take the high road and never short cut ethics. This is a lesson for lawyers, young and not-so-young, to live by. --Paul Byron, Overchuck, Byron, Overchuck P.A.

Students learn more from real life than they will ever learn from just reading cases and codes. This book provides an opportunity for students to learn the critical lessons of ethical practice by carefully examining situations where lawyers crossed the line. These are lessons that will stick with them forever. --Laurie L. Levenson, Professor of Law, David W. Burcham Chair of Ethical Advocacy, Loyola Law School

I use Lawyers Crossing Lines in a required first year course on professionalism. The stories make it possible for the students to see problems of ethics and professionalism from the perspectives of real lawyers dealing with real situations. They learn more from discussions about the stories than they could possibly learn from just studying abstract principles. --Patrick E. Longan, Bootle Chair in Ethics and Professionalism, Walter F. George School of Law, Mercer University

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a required book for our law school class Professional Responsibility.
It is an excellent supplement to the case book and reads like a novel. This book takes the principles of
professionalism and illustrates them in real like situation. If you saw the film Monster , you will find the chapter
deal with the story behind the movie fascinating.
