This book is a collection of true stories about lawyers who broke the rules ended up being sued for malpractice, disbarred, or prosecuted. Intended as supplemental reading for students in professional responsibility, ethics, or lawyering classes, it contains stories that come directly from the courtroom, revealing the gritty realities of lawyers in trouble. Each narrative was selected by several criteria: whether it raised significant issues of legal ethics; whether it would lend itself to good classroom discussion; and whether there was an interesting tale to be drawn from the trial record. The stories make fascinating and memorable reading and are an effective tool for conveying the principles of legal ethics and responsibility. This unique book - no other book on professional responsibility takes Kelley's storytelling approach - will be an important addition to the field.
