Combining rigorous analysis of the professional rules of lawyer conduct with extensive interdisciplinary materials on the legal profession and ethics, this casebook offers a unique perspective on the professional challenges facing contemporary lawyers—and their opportunity to promote the public good. The book combines real-life problems, doctrinal and statutory analysis, and carefully-edited readings to offer a comprehensive and critical examination of the role of lawyers as client representatives and democratic citizens. Many of the chapters can be used as independent units for courses focusing on ethical problems in corporate practice, tax practice, family law, and public interest law. The seventh edition also includes extensive revisions that provide new analysis of core professional rules, enhanced organizational formats, and critical additions to the case law and professional literature. Key changes include expanded coverage of how the lawyer-client relationship begins and ends; important updates to the materials on confidentiality, conflicts of interest, and market regulation; and new research on access to justice and the challenges to contemporary legal education.
