Legal Ethics and Legal Practice: Contemporary Issues

Synopsis

Lawyers in common law systems today sense that they are subjects of unprecedented investigation, criticism and attack. Yet finding responses to public criticism is not easy. This is the first collection of essays on legal ethics which addresses the subject from a comparative perspective. It aims to reflect on some of the key issues, suggest possible arguments which might lead to solutions, and to provide readers, particularly those involved in practice, with strategies for devising more "ethical" practices.
