This is a unique professional responsibility textbook that presents the ethics rules in an engaging, real-life manner and encourages active student involvement in the learning process.

Description

Learning Professional Responsibility engages students by offering colorful, real-life examples of how the Professional Responsibility rules guide and regulate lawyers in the everyday practice of law. This textbook deconstructs the ethics rules and bypasses long case-law narratives in favor of clear examples and illustrations drawing on ethics opinions, current events and lawyer news, online commentary, and court decisions. This second edition further highlights cutting-edge issues in professional responsibility, including topics such as the scope of representation, the duty of candor, conflicts, and the duty to protect client confidences in electronic formats.
