With the deluge of corporate debacles during the last few years, a commonly-heard phrase is "where were the lawyers?" The coursebook sets forth twelve separate scenarios in which business attorneys grapple with sensitive and difficult issues. Scenarios range from the attorney's role in representing small business enterprises to internal investigations, client fraud, the lawyer as intermediary, and attorney conflict of interest dilemmas. The book is concise (200 pages) and highly useful as a supplement for business enterprise and professional responsibility courses. The author is a respected scholar, and has served as an expert witness in such high profile cases as Enron, Martha Stewart and Tyco. Accompanied by a teacher's manual.
