Even lawyers who obey the law often seem to act unethically--interfering with the discovery of truth, subverting justice, and inflicting harm on innocent people. Standard arguments within legal ethics attempt to show why it is permissible to do something as a lawyer that it would be wrong to do as an ordinary person. But in the view of most critics these arguments fail to turn wrongs into rights. Even many lawyers think legal ethics is flawed because it does not accurately describe the considerable moral value of their work. In Lawyers and Fidelity to Law, Bradley Wendel introduces a new conception of legal ethics that addresses the concerns of lawyers and their critics alike. Wendel proposes an ethics grounded on the political value of law as a collective achievement that settles intractable conflicts, allowing people who disagree profoundly to live together in a peaceful, stable society. Lawyers must be loyal and competent client representatives, Wendel argues, but these obligations must always be exercised within the law that constitutes their own roles and confers rights and duties upon their clients. Lawyers act unethically when they treat the law as an inconvenient obstacle to be worked around and when they twist and distort it to help their clients do what they are not legally entitled to do. Lawyers and Fidelity to Law challenges lawyers and their critics to reconsider the nature and value of ethical representation.

Beneficial to the introductory law or philosophy student, "Ethics and the Legal Profession" comprises a selection of articles by eminent philosophers and lawyers that explore confrontations in the daily practice of law, employing in-depth case studies. The text is divided into six sections, each dealing with an important issue: The Structure of the Profession; The Moral Critique of Professionalism; The Adversary System; Conflict of Interest; Client Confidences; and, The Provision of Legal Services. Provoking questions on moral and professional responsibility, the ideology and tyranny of advocacy, and the professional's right to case refusal are approached. The introduction to each section sets the stage for the paper to follow. Following each section is a summary and a list of suggested readings for further understanding. Readings have been selected to give a historical perspective showing a revolution in philosophy, conceptual analysis, and moral reasoning - due to the growing consensus about the need for some measure of reform in the legal profession. This study of ethics can help students and professionals draw a sharper distinction between ethical and technical judgements, and help them to become clearer about the meaning of moral discourse in the workplace. The book would make excellent reading in a law or philosophy course in professional responsibility.
