Lawyering can be humdrum and routine, or it can be exciting and dangerous (or anywhere in between). Hofstra's sixth major conference on legal ethics' focused on the exciting and dangerous parts. The title of the conference was "Lawyering at the Edge: Unpopular Clients, Difficult Cases, Zealous Advocates." The extraordinary roster of nineteen speakers featured both practicing lawyers and outstanding scholars. The practicing lawyers described their own personal experiences lawyering at the edge, while the scholars examined the inspiring stories of lawyers who have exhibited remarkable courage.
