Abstract
At the 2006 Workshop of the National Institute for Teaching Ethics & Professionalism (www.law.gsu/niftep) Professor Timothy Mahoney, PhD, CPA, CFA, who teaches philosophy and business ethics at Providence College in Rhode Island, explored how models of good business practice might address some of the most pervasive problems of ethics and professionalism in the legal profession. He had developed this theme during his session at the Inaugural NIFTEP Workshop in September 2005 and expanded it as a NIFTEP presenter at the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Conference on New Ideas for Law Teachers held in Vancouver in June 2006. He was joined by Steve Olson, at that time Associate Director of the Southern Institute for Business & Professional Ethics at Georgia State University.
