If you are interested in legal ethics in history, read about the life of Sir Thomas More, lawyer and author of Utopia. In the service of Henry VIII, More held the powerful position of Lord Chancellor. However, More's opinions and personal morals eventually led to his execution.
And if you are an art lover, take a look at this portrait of More on the web site of The Frick Collection. It is a nice source for information about the artist and the subject.
