Rogers: The Ethics of Advocacy

Catherine A. Rogers (Pennsylvania State Univ. - Law; Bocconi Univ. - Institute of Comparative Law) has posted The Ethics of Advocacy. Here's the abstract:
This book chapter surveys existing conflicts among national ethical rules in international arbitration, analyzes recent developments in legal ethics and proposes innovations for the international arbitration community to manage and resolve these conflicts in a manner that will both alleviate the practical problems that arise in the absence of shared ethical principles, and strengthen the system as it works to develop and enforce internally its own international legal ethics. It is one chapter in a larger volume edited by Doak Bishop, which provides analysis about the inner workings of the international arbitration system and advice for counsel operating in that system.
