A colleague forwarded a book review link to me today, and I thought the review might interest a number of us who work with ASP. Although not strictly a title in our area, it is a new title that deals with honesty in the legal profession. All of us are concerned with our students becoming ethical legal professionals, even if only as role models rather than teachers of a professional responsibility course.
Steven Lubet has written The Importance of Being Honest: How Lying, Secrecy, and Hyposcrisy Collide with the Trust in Law. The book contains short chapters that focus on stories of ethical dilemnas that face lawyers, clients, judges, and academics. A final section compares doctor and lawyer ethics. Mark C. Miller reviewed the book recently at the following link: Book Review of Lubet Work on Honesty. (Amy Jarmon)
