Cases and Materials on the Legal Profession
Includes segments from Esquire, Legal Times, Texas Monthly, and Confessions of a Criminal Lawyer, as well as stimulating cases and law review articles. The order roughly tracks the ABA Model Rules. The casebook teaches students to think critically about the legal profession, yet avoids the cynicism that so often accompanies discussions of the profession. Includes introduction to the legal profession; the lawyer-client relationship; confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege; conflicts of interest; lawyer advocacy and its limits; business problems in the practice of law; provision of legal services; and judges.
