Addressing all participants in the system—lawyers and judges, police and probation officers, victims and the accused—the essays provide readers with a thought-provoking presentation of the many issues surrounding human conflict and the role ethics and fairness play in our criminal justice system.

Provides an overview of morality and the law, the Socratic question and the criminal justice practitioner, ethical concerns of a criminal defense attorney and the criminal prosecutor, judicial ethics, victims' vengeance, and the ethical behavior of correctional officers.

For individuals interested in social issues and morality.
