The Ethics Of Criminal Defense, William H. Simon Jun 1993

The Ethics Of Criminal Defense, William H. Simon

Michigan Law Review

A large literature has emerged in recent years challenging the standard conception of adversary advocacy that justifies the lawyer in doing anything arguably legal to advance the client's ends. This literature has proposed variations on an ethic that would increase the lawyer's responsibilities to third parties, the public, and substantive ideals of legal merit and justice.

With striking consistency, this literature exempts criminal defense from its critique and concedes that the standard adversary ethic may be viable there. This paper criticizes that concession. I argue that the reasons most commonly given to distinguish the criminal from the civil do not …

Parts And Wholes: The Integrity Of The Model Rules, Charles W. Wolfram Apr 1993

Parts And Wholes: The Integrity Of The Model Rules, Charles W. Wolfram

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

As important as is each of its parts, the 1983 Model Rules of Professional Conduct was, of course, meant to function as a whole. At the very least, the parts were presumably intended to work well with one another, sketching a regulatory apparatus that would guide both lawyers subject to it and courts and regulators administering it in a coherent and consistent manner. To a large extent the Model Rules made significant headway in this respect, continuing the movement toward more explicit and articulated regulation of the profession begun by their predecessor, the Model Code of Professional Responsibility.

Yet, …

The Inadmissibility Of Professional Ethical Standards In Legal Malpractice Actions After Hizey V. Carpenter, Marc R. Greenough Apr 1993

The Inadmissibility Of Professional Ethical Standards In Legal Malpractice Actions After Hizey V. Carpenter, Marc R. Greenough

Washington Law Review

In Hizey v. Carpenter, the Washington Supreme Court became the only court of last resort to prohibit introduction of the Code of Professional Responsibility and the Rules of Professional Conduct as evidence of an attorney's common law duty of care in an action for legal malpractice. This Note examines the Hizey decision and argues that the court should not create a preferential standard for attorneys. Instead, the court should admit professional ethical standards as evidence in legal malpractice actions on the same basis that the court admits statutes, ordinances, and administrative rules in other actions for negligence.

Themes Of Injustice: Wrongful Convictions, Racial Prejudice, And Lawyer Incompetence, Bennett L. Gershman Jan 1993

Themes Of Injustice: Wrongful Convictions, Racial Prejudice, And Lawyer Incompetence, Bennett L. Gershman

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

The U. S. criminal justice system has undergone radical changes in the past generation. Crime is more complex; prosecutors are more powerful; and courts, corrections agencies, and defense services are burdened with larger case loads and tighter budgets. It is not the best of times to talk about justice. Yet, it is a subject that needs to be constantly addressed, particularly in times of crisis. The following essay focuses on some of the problems that present themselves in the criminal justice system today, including the conviction of innocent defendants, especially in capital cases; racial prejudice; and lawyer incompetence.
