Government Lawyers - 95 edition

Government Lawyers (ISBN10: 0700607064; ISBN13: 9780700607068)
ISBN13: 978-0700607068
ISBN10: 0700607064

Summary: There are nearly 40,000 lawyers currently employed by the federal government and at least that many jokes about their inefficiency and general smarminess, voicing the deep distrust that Americans harbor toward the profession. These nine essays, written by a highly distinguished group of law and government scholars, argue the legitimate contributions of lawyers in government, examining the historical development, status, and trends in the offices of the attorney general, solicitor gen
eral, special prosecutor, White House legal counsel, office of legal counsel, and in the EPA and EEOC. The varied discussions are held together by a common thread: the theme of tension and conflict between politics and the profession's independence. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
