Abstract

Rhode's book, In the Interests of Justice, seeks to educate and reform the bar. She reveals the truth about modern legal practice, and carefully evaluates the lawyer's role in promoting or confounding justice. Her work should provoke a broader examination of how lawyers view the law they administer, and the manner in which it infuses moral accountability into the lawyer's work.
