American Bar Association, 2006 - Law - 906 pages
This comprehensive volume provides a series of summaries of the American Bar Association's legislative actions from 1982 to 2005 which shaped the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct. The Model Rules serve as the models for legal ethics rules of most states and provide guidance in resolving ethical problems, including lawyer malpractice cases, disciplinary actions, disqualification issues, sanctions questions and more. This history traces the significant changes to the Model Rules since their adoption by the ABA in 1982 and the rationale for those changes.
