I use this book to teach ethics to law students. It is a collection of 10 essays, including one by one of the editors (Deborah Rhode). The other editor, David Luban, wrote the introduction. As the essays are by different authors, they are of varying quality. However, each essay addresses a different ethical quandary. Five of them were previously published. The only essay by a non-lawyer is Alex Beam's coverage of the lawsuit against the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for reneging on its fee agreement with two of the law firms that earned it billions in the tobacco litigation. From a law professor's standpoint, Beam's is the weakest essay, containing no ethical analysis (and of course, the law firms did nothing wrong in suing to collect their contractual fees). Almost all of the essays (except Beam's) contain footnotes and citations to reported cases, which students (or other interested readers) can read as "primary" source material. Of course the book does not cover all of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct. It cannot take the place of a traditional casebook. On the other hand, it has broader appeal and interest than just to law students.

This book is a collection of various stories that tell ethical dilemmas in the legal field. The stories themselves have good lessons, but they're pretty long. I wish the stories were shaved down a bit.
