BINDING LAW

NEW BOOKS FROM THE FACULTY

THE NEW ETHICS:
A GUIDED TOUR OF THE
TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY
MORAL LANDSCAPE
BY ANITA L. ALLEN

Anita L. Allen, Henry R. Silverman Professor of Law, released her new book The New Ethics: A Guided Tour of the Twenty-First Century Moral Landscape last fall. Publishers Weekly named the book one of the top nonfiction books of 2004. Allen, who writes a column on ethics for the Newark Star-Ledger, pulls from the headlines and draws on examples from everyday life to examine lapses in ethics, and then prescribes solutions. This is her fourth book.

LEGAL ETHICS: A COMPARATIVE STUDY
BY GEOFFREY C. HAZARD

In their new book, Legal Ethics: A Comparative Study, Trustee Professor of Law Geoffrey C. Hazard and co-author Angelo Dondi examine the conflicts lawyers face in balancing the responsibilities they have to their clients and to the legal system. They look at how lawyers handle these competing pressures in the United States, Japan, Europe, and Latin America, as well as in the emerging legal systems in China and the former Soviet bloc.

IN THE SHADOW OF THE LAW
BY KERMIT ROOSEVELT

Assistant Professor Of Law Kermit Roosevelt will publish his first novel in June. In the Shadow of the Law tells the story of several associates and partners in a high-powered Washington law firm who become embroiled in a pro bono death penalty case and in a class-action lawsuit against a major chemical company. What results is a gripping tale that illuminates the practice of law and how it affects the community.
