This work is a collection of articles that explore the tension between the law governing the conduct of lawyers and the complex ethics of lawyering that pulls against that law and competes with it. This collection emphasizes the regulatory framework that has developed to govern the conduct of lawyers and draws heavily on the work of law and economics scholars. The Foundations of Law Series offers a collection of comprehensive readings that provide an interdisciplinary perspective on a substantive legal field. Edited by scholars who have made important contributions, the readings are designed to provide an accessible introduction to the leading scholarship in a field. Accompanying notes and questions permit students to engage fully in the literature on their own, as well as to aid their understanding of material covered in classes.
