New Title: Government Lawyering

Every so often, a new book is published that seems like it was made for expressly for people in this library. When I was looking at new titles from LexisNexis, this one jumped out at me as something I needed to buy for us. If there’s a large population of lawyers anywhere that might be making the move into government, or are there already, Ottawa is it!

Government Lawyering: Duties and Ethical Challenges of Government Lawyers came out at the end of September, and will be available on our shelves soon. As far as I know, this is the only book specifically on this topic, so make sure to check it out!
