Abstract
This essay presents a practical vision of the responsibilities of lawyers as both professionals and as citizens at the beginning of the 21st century. Specifically, we seek to define and give content to four ethical responsibilities that we believe are of signal importance to lawyers in their fundamental roles as expert technicians, wise counselors, and effective leaders: responsibilities to their clients and stakeholders; responsibilities to the legal system; responsibilities to their institutions; and responsibilities to society at large. Our fundamental point is that the ethical dimensions of lawyering for this era must be given equal attention to—and must be highlighted and integrated with—the significant economic, political, and cultural changes affecting major legal institutions and the people and institutions lawyers serve.

Abstract
"This Memo to the CEO explains why the fusion of high performance with high integrity is the foundation of the contemporary corporation, and why it is necessary - not only to avoid the catastrophic impact of integrity lapses, but to sustain companies in today's ruthlessly competitive environment." "This Memo reframes crucial debates on corporate governance, pay for CEO performance, and the real sources of business ethics. It provides senior executives with a much-needed blueprint for fusing the twin goals of capitalism - high performance with high integrity - in the high-speed, high-pressure twenty-first-century global economy."--Jacket.
