Little attention has been devoted to ethical problems facing American lawyers engaged in commercial and corporate work in foreign countries or with foreign clients. IEven less attention has been paid to the professional responsibilities of lawyers engaged in an international human rights legal practice. 2 As an increas- ing number of lawyers become involved in the practice of international human rights law in the courts of the United States, in international fora, and abroad, issues will continue to arise regarding the ethical constraints on their work.3
