The Trouble with Lawyers - Deborah L. Rhode
Call Number: KF297 .R464 2015
ISBN: 0190217227
Publication Date: 2015
Deborah Rhode's The Trouble with Lawyers is a comprehensive account of the challenges facing the American bar. She examines how the problems have affected (and originated within) law schools, firms, and governance institutions like bar associations; the impact on the justice system and access to lawyers for the poor; and the profession's underlying difficulties with diversity. She uncovers the structural problems, from the tyranny of law school rankings and billable hours to the lack of accountability and innovation built into legal governance-all of which do a disservice to lawyers, their clients, and the public.

It links legal ethics with materials drawn from other disciplines, especially sociology, economics, and psychology, to help students appreciate actual practice realities and the implications for daily experience. It includes some of the classic cases and materials on professional responsibility and also features up-to-date problems and materials on current issues.
