Abstract

Argues that there is no blanket justification for lawyers acting as neutral partisans. Instead, depending on the particular practice context and all the unique circumstances of each individual case, lawyers may be justified in refusing to represent particular individuals or (after moral dialogue) to do everything legal and not prohibited by professional rules for them.
