article description
Kenneth Mann's Defending White Collar Crime treats an aspect oflaw practice that every lawyer knows about, but many may fear to question-the concealing and distorting of facts so that a client avoids his justdeserts under the law. This important book puts this issue in the complexcontext of actual practice, where such misconduct cannot be clearly distinguished,empirically or morally, from lawful tactics of the advocate. Anyonewho has supposed that the solution to this problem is easy will haveto think again in the light of Dr. Mann's fascinating study.
