Torture debate extends beyond U.S. borders

Secretary General of the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe 
Jonathan Goldsmith considers the question of torture and the 
public interest:

"These debates raise fundamental issues about the role of lawyers. What is the borderline between bad legal advice and unprofessional conduct? Must you knowingly provide false advice? Recklessly? Is it enough to save you if you sincerely believe the most foolish and unlawful things to be true and lawful? Is it the procedures you use in coming to the wrong legal advice which should be considered when coming to a conclusion about unprofessional conduct, or the substance of the advice itself?"
