Product Description


"Richard Abel has produced an interesting and provocative book. Anyone interested in the nature of lawyers' work, and the problems lawyers can create for themselves in carrying out that work, will be interested in what Abel shows in his case studies." -Law and Politics Book Review, June 2009"Drawing on detailed records of six disciplinary proceedings and on an extensive body of theoretical literature, Abel considers the structural causes of systemic moral failure in the legal profession. He argues that typical measures to deal with ethical lapses by lawyers are ineffective and concludes that the monopoly power enjoyed by attorneys in the United States must be drastically contracted." -Law & Social Inquiry, Fall 2009 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
