Ethical Challenges to Legal Education and Conduct
Hart Pub., 1998 - Law - 366 pages
This volume is concerned with the future education and conduct of lawyers, in particular through the rediscovery and setting out of the ethical dimension of legal education. The major themes of the book include: the importance of the moral dimension to legal thought and action and the possibility of incorporating ethics into the legal curriculum; the public interest in raising the standard of lawyers' conduct through education rather than regulation; and the need for more to be understood of the emerging economic, political, professional and adversarial structures of the profession, which are likely to govern the development of ethical behaviour.
