What are the risks and ethical responsibilities for lawyers working in the executive branch when asked to defend actions that raise serious constitutional concerns? On November 4 the Jacob Burns Center for Ethics in the Practice of Law held the first discussion in a new series called “Lawyers Behaving Badly,” hosted by Co-Directors Jessica Roth and Anthony Sebok. The first session, entitled “Episode One: The Executive Branch”, featured Cardozo’s Professor Kate Shaw. Shaw is a constitutional scholar and has served in the White House Counsel’s Office as a Special Assistant to the President and Associate Counsel to the President in the Obama Administration.
