Flanders on the Need for Ethics Instruction in Law School
Posted by Jeff Lipshaw
My co-author (of the soon-to-be published ABA book, Becoming a Law Professor, with Brannon Denning), Marcia McCormick, passed along this link to a column in National Jurist by her St. Louis U. colleague Chad Flanders (right). I'm sympathetic to the position that much of law school (as well as legal scholarship) hits the low-hanging and not very interesting fruit on these issues - that many of the ethical issues facing lawyers go beyond the Model Rules (which are almost all directed essentially to litigation in any event), and often involve choices made in good faith by ethically-inclined people among several less-than-perfect alternatives.
