In Search of the Ethical Lawyer
Stories From the Canadian Legal ProfessionBook - 2016
What options did Paul Bernardo's lawyer have when his client directed him to retrieve hidden evidence? Where would David Milgaard be today if a lawyer hadn't doggedly challenged his murder conviction? And what should a defence lawyer do when told her client is a danger to the public? In this book, leading Canadian legal academics and practising lawyers draw on real-life stories to probe the tension between ethics and the law. Whether re-examining high-profile cases, celebrating barristers who tore down barriers, or pointing out current injustices within the justice system, their stories are compelling and raise important questions about what it takes to be a "good" lawyer.
