This Understanding treatise presents a systematic position on lawyers' ethics. The authors argue that lawyers' ethics is rooted in the Bill of Rights and in the autonomy and the dignity of the individual. This traditionalist, client-centered view of the lawyer's role in an adversary system corresponds to the ethical standards that are held by a large proportion of the practicing bar. From this perspective, the authors of Understanding Lawyers' Ethics analyze the fundamental issues of lawyers' ethics, and particularly the ABA's Model Rules and Model Code. Even if students do not share the authors' viewpoint, they can benefit from this presentation because it challenges them to appreciate the underlying reasons for the position presented. This treatise is designed to facilitate a real understanding of legal rules as distinguished from a superficial familiarity with them by challenging the reader to test their understanding of the legal rules against the reader's own moral standards and reasoned judgment. The Fourth Edition includes: • A new section on Law vs. Justice, in addition to the section on Moral Values and Ethical Choices • The debate between Mike Tigar and Freedman on morality in lawyering. • A new chapter on Lawyers' Ethics in a Time of Crisis • A chapter on Judicial Ethics, with analysis of Caperton v. Massey Coal Co. and White v. Republican Party of Minnesota, as well as critical commentary on the failure of several Supreme Court justices to recuse themselves when required by the Constitution and by statute to do so • A concise but comprehensive chapter on Prosecutors' Ethics • A demonstration that the corporate-fraud report up and report out provisions have been deliberately drafted to defeat their purported purpose • Harmonization of Primus and Ohralik, showing that even in-person solicitation of clients is entitled to a level of First Amendment protection • An on-line debate among Steve Gillers, three practicing lawyers, and Freedman about professionalism, and whether a lawyer should take advantage of an adversary's mistake • A candid chapter on Counseling Clients, Coaching Witnesses, and Cross-Examining to Discredit the Truth

This classic collection of essays, first published in 1968, has had an enduring impact on academic and public debates about criminal responsibility and criminal punishment. Forty years on, its arguments are as powerful as ever. H.L.A. Hart offers an alternative to retributive thinking about criminal punishment that nevertheless preserves the central distinction between guilt and innocence. He also provides an account of criminal responsibility that links the distinction between guilt and innocence closely to the ideal of the rule of law, and thereby attempts to by-pass unnerving debates about free will and determinism. Always engaged with live issues of law and public policy, Hart makes difficult philosophical puzzles accessible and immediate to a wide range of readers. For this new edition, otherwise a reproduction of the original, John Gardner adds an introduction engaging critically with Hart's arguments, and explaining the continuing importance of Hart's ideas in spite of the intervening revival of retributive thinking in both academic and policy circles. Unavailable for ten years, the new edition of Punishment and Responsibility makes available again the central text in the field for a new generation of academics, students and professionals engaged in criminal justice and penal policy.

We often define ourselves by our work, with a frequent introductory question being, 'What do you do?' Because we devote so much of our lives to our jobs, anything affecting them is of special concern to us. The federal government has assumed a role of protecting the rights of labourers, with the prime example being the Fair Labor Standards Act, which is the primary federal statute in the area of minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labour. Since its adoption in 1938, the act has undergone several amendments and periodic changes. A constant issue is the level of the minimum wage, with many public officials and labour groups calling for its raise. Some though, have made proposals to weaken federal wage protection and exempt certain businesses from the law. Heated debate continues on both sides of this topic, which so closely impacts a significant portion of the population. Federal oversight of labour and work conditions is a fact of life, and the standards by which authorities fulfil this task need to be understood. This book studies the history behind and application of the Fair Labor Standards Act in its three distinct areas of minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labour. information this book holds becomes necessary to developing a clear vision of how the government influences the 'workaday world'.
