    The ABA Canons of Ethics was adopted in 1908 and created ethical standards for lawyers. This collection celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Canons of Ethics by examining the impact of ethics on the past, present and future role of the trial lawyer. The book focuses on four distinct roles:

    • Litigators and clients
    • Litigators and each other
    • Litigators and the court
    • Litigators and society

    With an introduction by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, the book offers perspectives on ethics from judges, law professors and practitioners. Provocative and insightful, A Century of Legal Ethics provides today's lawyers with an illuminating look at how ethical standards have shaped and challenged the profession. Also included are the complete texts of the 1908 Canons of Ethics and the 2008 ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

    "All of us recognize that as much as we hone our skills as great advocates--crafting opening arguments of stunning simplicity, cross-examinations of scalpel-like precision, and stentorian arguments that complete the final sale--the backbone of the profession of trial lawyer is, in fact, assembled from the ethical precepts that we not only establish for ourselves, but like to think we follow with true dedication and commitment." From the Introduction by Judith Miller, Chair of the ABA Section of Litigation, 2007-08 Published by First Chair Press
