Legal Ethics Summary

Legal Ethics by Jonathan Herring

Who would or should defend a potential murderer in court? Can a lawyer represent two parties on the same case? Is 'no win-no fee' an ethical system? What are Chinese walls and do they work? Jonathan Herring provides a clear and engaging overview of legal ethics, highlighting that the issues surrounding professional conduct are not always black and white and raising interesting questions about how lawyers act and what their role entails. Key topics, such as confidentiality, negligence, and fees are covered, with references throughout to the professional codes of conduct. Features throughout the textbook to aid student learning include the highlighting of key cases, principles, and definitions; the inclusion of a variety of viewpoints through cases, popular media, and scholarly articles; and the inclusion of 'digging deeper' and 'alternative viewpoint' boxes which encourage critical reflection and better understanding of key topics.
