Professor Anita Allen
Lawyers have privileged opportunities to infuse moral and ethical ideals into the law. In their roles as advisers, mediators, litigators, legislators, adjudicators, lobbyists and officials, lawyers’ ethical values shape the process and content of law. To these roles, add newspaper columnist and television commentator. Ordinary lawyers and legal academics like me comment from time to time on moral and ethical issues for print, television, radio and Internet-based media. Media commentary is a law-shaping role, for the power to influence public opinion is also the power to shape the law.
