I am familiar with the principle ingrained in law school students that everyone is entitled to representation before the law (my wife was an attorney). However, is there no room for one’s conscience? If M. Evan Corcoran ’86 (“Trump Attorney 1,” September issue) somehow manages to get either Steve Bannon or Donald Trump off the hook, he will probably be considered as a fine gamesman of the law. But is this really an example of Princeton in the Nation’s Service?
