In this book, 'Lawyers Gone Bad: Money, Sex and Madness in Canada's Legal Profession' by Philip Slayton-formerly a Bay Street lawyer and a dean of law- tells the stories of a number of unethical, and often criminal, lawyers. As Slayton notes, "stories of lawyers gone bad-even when the facts are complex, technical, and dry-have a macabre interest."
