Prof. Monroe Freedman Quoted in ‘Lessons from King & Spaulding’
Professor Monroe Freedman was recently quoted in Kerry Eleveld’s blog post titled “Lessons from King & Spaulding.” And except can be found below:
“Outside of certain criminal proceedings, Freedman says, ‘There’s absolutely no doubt that a lawyer has complete discretion to take or not to take any particular client. For that reason, it’s my view that, that decision — whether to take a client — is the most important point of moral decision making for the lawyer.’”
