Dimensions of Ethical Responsibility: Relevant Others, 54 U. Pittsburgh L. Rev. 965 (1993)


I wish to repeat a point and advance a thesis. The point is that
analysis of the ethical responsibilities in the practice of law has been
seriously hindered by inappropriate comparison with ethics that supposedly
govern in everyday life. The thesis is that essentially the same
basic dimensions of ethical responsibility may be used to analyze ethics
in the practice of law as may be used to analyze ethics in other vocational
situations and in everyday life. Because, as I argue, these dimensions
are inherent in all ethical problems, they can be used in the comparison
of ethical problems arising in the practice of law with those
that arise in other settings.
