Abstract

The Foreword to this Symposium issue reviews the law and literature movement in law and suggests ways of using cases, stories and narratives (real, simulated and imagined) to teach about legal ethics, lawyering and decision-making. The essay reviews some of the "classics" in legal ethics fiction and introduces the articles in the issue which discuss real cases, simulations, fictionalized real cases and literary treatments of lawyering ethics issues and moral dilemmas.
