George Elliott Clarke: Acclaimed Recent Publications

George Elliott Clarke has received positive acclaim for two publications that he was involved with:

  • Why Good Lawyers Matter (Irwin Law Inc., 2012): A collection of essays on the status of lawyers in Canadian society. Excerpt of the lengthy review by Amy Salyzyn:
    "From the beautifully written foreword by George Elliot Clarke, a Canadian poet and playwright, to the final essay addressing 'the fundamental ideals of the legal profession' authored by leading Canadian jurist, Justice Stephen T. Goudge, it is clear that this is no ordinary book on legal ethics. One of the major strengths of Why Good Lawyers Matter lies in its success in bringing together a wide range of perspectives on the legal profession. The book features an impressive list of Canadian legal ethics scholars as well as a number of practicing lawyers, judges, and a journalist." Read the full review here:
