How do lawyers resolve ethical dilemmas in the everyday context of their practice? What are the issues that commonly arise, and how do lawyers determine the best ways to resolve them? Until recently, efforts to answer these questions have focused primarily on rules and legal doctrine rather than the real-life situations lawyers face in legal practice. The first book to present empirical research on ethical decision making in a variety of practice contexts, including corporate litigation, securities, immigration, and divorce law, Lawyers in Practice fills a substantial gap in the existing literature. Following an introduction emphasizing the increasing importance of understanding context in the legal profession, contributions focus on ethical dilemmas ranging from relatively narrow ethical issues to broader problems of professionalism, including the prosecutor’s obligation to disclose evidence, the management of conflicts of interest, and loyalty to clients and the court. Each chapter details the resolution of a dilemma from the practitioner’s point of view that is, in turn, set within a particular community of practice. Timely and practical, this book should be required reading for law students as well as students and scholars of law and society.

Be the CEO of Your Law Firm: Gain Control, Turn a Profit, and Reclaim Your Life is written for attorneys who are struggling to get out from under a mindset that is holding them back from building their dream law firm. A law practice is a business and you must treat it like one in order to be successful. Many of us became attorneys because we care about people. But our passion for our work doesn¿t always translate to making a good living. This book prepares you for the journey from barely keeping your head above water to being in control of your practice, your finances, and your life. Be the CEO of Your Law Firm defines what it means to be the CEO and outlines the Roles and Responsibilities you must master in order to grow and prosper: (1) Creating Your Vision and Strategy; (2) Marketing Your Services; (3) Taming Your Finances; (4) Managing Your Firm; (5) Cultivating Your Relationships; and (6) Attaining Client Satisfaction. It is designed to guide you through the most important aspects of what it takes to master your new CEO role and mindset. It is designed to make you think. It forces you to analyze the problems you face in running your law firm. It forces you to write down things that you may not necessarily feel good about when it comes to how your law firm has been operating. Ultimately, the book empowers you to look at the things you¿ve been hiding from in your firm, face them head on, and take control of the firm rather than the firm continuing to take control of you.
