About the author (1999)

Stephen Gillers is the author of several law books on the topics of justice and morals. Books such as Regulation of Lawyers: Problems of Law and Ethics and Getting Justice: The Rights of People outline problems in the American justice system and confront ethical questions that face the judicial system and the public. Gillers has also written numerous articles on many topics, including Kenneth Starr and the Whitewater scandal. Gillers graduated from Brooklyn College and received his J.D. from New York University School of Law in 1968. After a brief stint in private practice, he turned to teaching and is now a professor of law at New York University School of Law. Gillers' expertise in the field of legal ethics makes him a highly sought-after speaker, who has spoken before Congress.
