Who Am I To Judge?
This paper discusses the standard conception of lawyers’ ethics and reviews key provisions in the Code of Conduct that govern Alberta lawyers. It then highlights an alternative approach to legal ethics, the discretionary approach, discussing topics such as relative merit, internal merit, the tradition of the adversary system, the unpopular client, personal values, and more.
This paper is part of a collection presented at LESA’s 51st Annual Refresher: Business program in Lake Louise from May 6–8, 2018.
