'If lawyers continue to insist that litigation is 'war' by other means, then it is critical that they move beyond the 'all is fair' caricature of the ethics of war that typically underpins this comparison. In this timely book, Allan Hutchinson turns the standard 'law is war' analogy on its head by challenging us to consider the implications of applying the complex and nuanced ethics of just war theory to the practice of adversarial litigation. The result is a novel and thought-provoking analysis that will start a badly needed debate about the content and scope of the ethics of 'just litigation' in a world in which we continue to hope that the rule of law will one day replace 'the rule of force'.' David B. Wilkins, Lester Kissel Professor of Law and Faculty Director, Center on the Legal Profession, Harvard University, Massachusetts 'Fighting Fair offers a highly original and insightful analysis of contemporary legal ethics. Drawing on the metaphor that 'litigation is war', Allan Hutchinson measures lawyers' tactics by that standard and finds them lacking. Building on military ethics and theories of just war, this book challenges our conventional wisdom on lawyers' moral responsibility and offers an imaginative alternative.' Deborah L. Rhode, E. W. McFarland Professor of Law and Director, Center on the Legal Profession, Stanford University, California
