Now in its Second Edition, Examples & Explanations: Professional
Responsibility continues to be an appropriate ancillary source for
students in any Professional Responsibility course. Not only does it utilize
the proven pedagogy of the E&E series, but it is a completely comprehensive
and well-balanced text. This problem-oriented guide is not a simple march
through the Model Rules. Instead, it is structured around concepts, with rules
and the generally applicable law introduced as needed.
This edition retains the great features that made it a dependable source
for students in its First Edition:
covers the entire law governing lawyers
includes agency, fiduciary duty, tort, contract, constitutional, and corporate
and securities law.
applies concepts and introduces the generally applicable law as needed,
avoiding a narrow focus on the Model Rules
supplements textual discussions with examples that work through progressively
more complex issues
uses both text and problems to break the analysis down into steps
presents a balanced approach to controversial issues
offers an accessible, conversational style
draws examples from actual cases, so they are representative of the problems
students can expect to encounter in practice
incorporates the new sources of law (ABA's Ethics 2000 Initiative, Restatement
of Law Governing Lawyers, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act) organically, rather than as
add-ons
Carefully revised in its Second Edition, this fully up-to-date source:
integrates carefully and thoughtfully updated cases, ethics opinions, and
problems
emphasizes the newest versions of the ABA rules, while retaining information
about the older rules where necessary
