The article “Regulation of Lawyers in Government Beyond the Representation Role” by Ellen Yaroshefsky, the Howard Lichtenstein Distinguished Professor of Legal Ethics and the executive director of the Monroe Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics, has been accepted for publication in the Notre Dame Journal of Ethics and Public Policy.

The article discusses whether lawyers in public office should be subject to ethics rules sanctioning dishonesty, deceit, fraud and misrepresentation when those lawyers are not acting as counsel to a client. It considers First Amendment and other implications and concludes that public officials who are lawyers are subject to such regulation when the misrepresentations adversely affect the lawyers’ fitness to practice law.
