Summary
A Modern Legal Ethics proposes a wholesale renovation of legal ethics, one that contributes to ethical thought generally. Daniel Markovits reinterprets the positive law governing lawyers to identify fidelity as its organizing ideal.

Fidelity requires lawyers to lie and to cheat on behalf of their clients. Howev
