About the Author

Dr Tim Dare is a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy and Part-time Lecturer in Law at the University of Auckland, New Zealand


'Tim Dare rises to the challenge of defending what some would consider indefensible - the morality of the lawyer's role. He does so in a rigorous and lucid way. This is a spirited riposte to the many critics of the so-called standard conception of lawyers' ethics. He argues that lawyers properly act zealously to ensure clients get the benefits accorded by law (even if the enjoyment of those benefits is considered reprehensible). Anyone who is serious about legal ethics needs to read this book and either agree with Tim or answer him - neither will be easy.' Duncan Webb, Canterbury University, New Zealand 'One of the most significant contributions to the growing literature on legal ethics yet published. Drawing on philosophical, legal and literary sources Dare presents a highly original and sophisticated analysis of the role of the modern lawyer that should be required reading on mandatory ethics classes in every law school.' Kim Economides, University of Otago, New Zealand 'The debate over professional role morality has been assumed to have been won by critics of the standard conception, but in this elegant, carefully argued book, Dare shows how the lawyer's role is justified as a contribution to procedures that enable us to live together in a community, despite moral pluralism and disagreement.' Brad Wendel, Cornell University, USA
