Presidential Ethics: Should a Law Degree Make a Difference?

By Nancy B. Rapoport

Abstract

Two of the nation\u27s most controversial presidents, Nixon and Clinton, were both lawyers, and both of them had ethics-related problems while in office. This essay reviews whether any model ethics rules force lawyer-presidents to behave at a higher standard than non-lawyer-presidents; then it discusses the implications for legal education if we really do want lawyers to go above and beyond the norm of behavior

Topics: Clinton, Nixon, professional responsibility, president, lawyer, attorney, Law and Politics, Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility
