This collection contains the very best writing on lawyers' ethics.

What does it mean to be a good lawyer? How does a lawyer navigate the inevitable tension between moral principles and professional responsibilities?

The collection brings together previously published articles alongside a specially commissioned introduction by the volume editors which provides an overview of the articles and themes in the collection. This volume is of interest to teachers and scholars of legal ethics, and undergraduate and graduate students of law.
