"Leading scholars offer diverse opinions on how to narrow the gap between the ideals and the institutions of legal practice."--The American Lawyer
"These essays should prove especially provocative and instructive for students and practitioners of law. Recommended for upper division undergraduates, graduates, and law students."--CHOICE
"This is a splendid and finely-crafted collection. It can serve both as a state-of-the-art guide to the most important current debates about legal professionalism and as the starting point finally to move beyond the rhetorical posturing that still dominates the field. Instead of adding more words toward laments about the decline in professional ethics or the lack of lawyer civility, the authors find new theoretical and practical approaches that confront the full complexity of the asserted professional crisis and its causes."--Bryant Garth, American Bar Foundation
"The honest critiques and moral ambitions of the essays collected in this volume revitalize the study of the legal profession. Deborah Rhode has brought together a bracing mixture of scholars who pursue the structural as well as the personal factors crucial to meaningful change."--Martha Minow, Harvard University
"The ethical dilemmas of lawyers are a staple of professional debates, but also of popular culture. The reason for such broad curiosity is simple: the promises of any justice system very much depend on the conduct of its ministers. So in a democracy, it is essential that the public, not the professionals, be the final arbiter of the rules governing the behavior of lawyers. To advance that goal, Deborah Rhode has here assembled leading American thinkers on the topic who, in clear prose based on experience, illuminate the issues in ways that permit readers to understand the questions and supply their own answers."--Stephen Gillers, New York University
"Some of the most formidable minds in the country turn their attention to the complex and sometimes contradictory ethical principles that underlie legal practice in this compelling book. Rhode's own brilliant analysis and commitment is complemented by an array of essays--distinguished by their depth and clarity--that will engage readers far beyond the boundaries of the legal profession."--Cynthia Fuchs Epstein, Graduate Center, CUNY
