The Lawyer Myth: A Defense of the American Legal Profession

Swallow Press/Ohio University Press, 2008

KF298.S775 2008


In The Lawyer Myth: A Defense of the American Legal Profession, the authors look beyond stereotypical antilawyer media images to explore the historical role of lawyers as a balancing force in times of social, economic, and political change.

By explaining the facts and reasoning behind the decisions in such cases as the infamous McDonald’s coffee spill, the authors describe the operation of the law while addressing misconceptions about the number of lawsuits, runaway jury verdicts, and legal “technicalities” that turn criminals out on the street.  The authors also propose several reforms for the bar, the judiciary, and law schools that will enable lawyers to reach the profession’s potential.
