Cases and Materials on the Professional Responsibility of Lawyers
Introduces students to rules of ethics, procedure, and substantive principles of law. Students are reminded of the three principal contexts of lawyer regulation: (1) the disciplinary committee; (2) the malpractice forum; and (3) the judicial regulation of lawyers in representing clients. The book also balances professional responsibility issues in litigation and office practice areas. Over a quarter of the discussion on representation is devoted to problems of a lawyer as an adviser, intermediary, evaluator, and lobbyist. Students entering an office practice (tax, corporate, securities, and real estate) will benefit from the book, as will those who practice in the civil or criminal courtroom.
