“Fitting Lying to the Court into the Central Moral Tradition of Lawyering”
Sponsor
The Robert P. Lawry Lecture in Legal Ethics
SEP 26, 2007
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
Should lawyers ever lie to the court? Professor Monroe H. Freedman - the modern-day guru of client-centered advocacy - recently has suggested that they sometimes should. Professor Zacharias will locate Freedman’s claim within modern scholarship debating the role of lawyers. Looking to the work of legal ethicists, moral philosophers, and Bob Lawry himself, Zacharias will challenge Freedman’s conclusions and, in Lawry’s terms, make an effort to “get the paradigm straight.”
