Ethical issues do not occur in isolation. Instead, real-life situations arise in the workplace alongside other pressing issues such as job security, career advancement, peer pressure, manager evaluations, and company profits.

For this reason, students and employees in law need concise and common sense guidance that provides a framework for how to voice one's values in the midst of competing interests. This book does just that. By providing twelve accessible scenarios drawn from real-life examples, this book walks readers through some of the most common ethical issues they will face in the workplace and how to address them in a manner that is realistic and effective.

There are two clear reasons to read Giving Voice to Values in the Legal Profession. First, it is practical. The book presents information that is readily useful to students as they move forwards in their personal lives and careers.

Second, the book is concise and easy to add to an existing course. It can provide a context for discussing a myriad of issues around ethics in the legal profession.
