There is a widespread perception that even when lawyers are acting squarely within their roles, being good lawyers, they display the vices of dishonesty and deviousness. At the heart of the perception is the so called standard conception of the lawyer’s role according to which lawyers owe special duties to their clients which render permissible, or even mandatory, acts that would otherwise count as morally impermissible. Many have concluded that the standard conception should be set aside. This book suggests that the moral implications of the standard conception are often mischaracterised. Critics suggest that the conception requires lawyers to secure any advantage the law can be made to give. But Dare offers a moral argument for the conception, according to which it justifies a more limited and moderate sphere of professional conduct than is normally supposed, allowing lawyers to preserve their integrity while giving proper weight to the role-differentiated permissions and obligations of their roles.

Im Zweifel gegen den Angeklagten Sebastian Rudd ist kein typischer Anwalt. Seine Kanzlei ist ein Lieferwagen, eingerichtet mit Bar, Kühlschrank und Waffenschrank. Er arbeitet allein, sein einziger Vertrauter ist sein Fahrer, der zudem als Leibwächter und Golfcaddie fungiert. Sebastian Rudd verteidigt jene Menschen, die andere als den Bodensatz der Gesellschaft bezeichnen. Warum? Weil er Ungerechtigkeit verabscheut und überzeugt ist, dass jeder Mensch einen fairen Prozess verdient. Mit Sebastian Rudd hat John Grisham seinen brillantesten, eigenwilligsten und lebendigsten Helden geschaffen. Der Gerechte ist hart, clever und packend und zeigt den Meister des Justizthrillers in Höchstform.

Jedes Unrecht hat seinen Preis Als New Yorker Anwältin hat es Samantha Kofer binnen weniger Jahre zu Erfolg gebracht. Mit der Finanzkrise ändert sich alles. Samantha wird gefeuert. Doch für ein Jahr Pro-Bono-Engagement bekommt sie ihren Job zurück. Samantha geht nach Brady, Virginia, einem 2000-Seelen-Ort, der sie vor große Herausforderungen stellt. Denn anders als ihre New Yorker Klienten, denen es um Macht und Geld ging, kämpfen die Einwohner Bradys um ihr Leben. Ein Kampf, den Samantha bald zu ihrem eigenen macht und der sie das Leben kosten könnte. Samantha Kofer, ambitionierte Anwältin bei einer der größten Kanzleien in New York, wird kurz nach dem Untergang der US-Investmentbank Lehman Brothers von ihrem Job freigestellt. Im Gegensatz zu vielen ihrer Kollegen, die von einem auf den anderen Tag auf der Straße stehen, bietet man ihr einen Deal an: Wenn sie für ein Jahr ohne Gehalt bei einer Non-Profit-Organisation arbeitet, behält sie ihren Job. So verschlägt es Samantha nach Brady, einem kleinen Ort in den Bergen Virginias, wo sie bei einer Beratungsstelle für kostenlosen Rechtsbeistand anheuert. Anfangs noch etwas unbeholfen in der ungewohnten Umgebung, entwickelt Samantha bald ein Gespür für die Nöte der Einwohner Bradys. Menschen, die auf den umliegenden Kohlefeldern jahrelang Schwerstarbeit geleistet haben und nun, ausgebrannt oder erkrankt, von den Kohleunternehmen im Stich gelassen werden. Der tragische Fall eines Arbeiters, der von Elend und Krankheit so gezeichnet ist, dass ihm nur noch wenige Monate zu leben bleiben, lässt Samantha schließlich über sich hinauswachsen. Gemeinsam mit einem befreundeten Anwalt nimmt sie den Kampf gegen die Kohlemagnaten auf und schreckt auch dann nicht zurück, als ihr Leben akut bedroht wird.

Rogues’ Wedding is a masterful and wildy inventive novel from acclaimed author Terry Griggs. Set in 1898, it takes us on a comic romp across Victorian Ontario, through a landscape full of extraordinary characters and natural wonders, as we follow two newlyweds whose fates are more entwined than they’d like to believe. As Griffith Smolders prepares to join his new wife in the bedroom of their bridal suite, he takes an inordinate amount of care in disrobing. What slows him down is not a meticulous nature, but rather fear and self-doubt -- and a suspicion that Avice’s sexual knowledge far exceeds his own. While pacing the room and fretting about what awaits him, Grif is startled by a mysterious, glowing ball of light that floats in through the window. He wonders if it might be the work of some prankster, intent on disrupting the night’s activities, but when the ball begins to chase him around the room and singe his heels, he knows it must be an omen: a sign that in marrying Avice he has made a terrible, terrible mistake. Jumping out the window, he escapes the fiery menace -- and his bride -- and runs off into the night. True to Grif’s fears, the bold Avice has positioned herself on the bed “dressed in absolutely nothing but her frightening knowledge,” and spends the moments leading up to her mate’s arrival smiling at the thought of his nervous preparations. But after an hour has passed, she investigates and discovers that she is utterly alone. At first she is too overwhelmed to move, but Avice has never been one to play the victim or accept defeat. Her shock is soon replaced with fury and she swears to exact her revenge: she will claim what is hers, no matter the cost (to him). Taking care not to alert her family to Grif’s disappearance, she heads out on their honeymoon as planned -- and then begins to hunt Grif down. So begins Rogues’ Wedding, and the fanciful flight -- and fight -- at its heart. Whereas Avice knows very well her destination -- wherever she can find and punish her errant husband -- Grif is propelled forward only by his desire to flee. After he leaves London he heads north, and his vagabond journey becomes a magical odyssey through the landscape and society of Victorian Ontario. What he finds along the way is mostly trouble. Traversing the countryside, Grif resorts to thievery to make his way, but without much success. Then he comes to the aid of a coquettish young lady and mistakenly boards a ship that is about to sink. He is the sole survivor of the wreck, and when he washes up on shore he is taken in by a nurturing lighthouse keeper who attempts to set him back on track by sending him off with an amateur naturalist to roam the shoreline. But of course Grif doesn’t really have a track, and when his encounter with a bizarre family leads to accusations of murder, he holes up in a small hotel on Manitoulin Island to await his certain demise. There, it’s not the law that catches up with him, but Avice. And their reunion, when it happens, is blisteringly intense. From the Trade Paperback edition.
