Ethics and Professionalism in Non-Adversarial Lawyering

By Carrie Menkel-Meadow

Abstract

Traditional notions and rules of professionalism in the legal profession have been premised on particular conceptions of the lawyer\u27s role, usually as an advocate, occasionally as a counselor, advisor, transaction planner, government official, decision maker and in the recent parlance of one of this symposium\u27s participants-a \u22statesman [sic]. \u27\u22 As we examine what professionalism means and what rules should be used to regulate its activity, it is important to ask some foundational questions: For what ends should our profession be used? What does law offer society? How should lawyers exercise their particular skills and competencies
