Selected Standards on Professional Responsibility provides key materials in one of the most dynamic fields in American law. As ethics lawyers sometimes say: The questions remain the same but the answers keep changing. This volume collects the most up-to-date and important standards that govern judicial and legal ethics, including:
  • ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct
  • California Rules of Professional Conduct and selected lawyer regulatory statutes
  • New York Rules of Professional Conduct
  • Restatement (Third): The Law Governing Lawyers
  • Relevant Federal Statutes and Rules Applicable to Lawyers
  • ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct
  • California Code of Judicial Ethics
  • Code of Conduct for United States Judges
  • Selected Federal Statutes Applicable to Federal Judges

This 2022 Supplement reflects changes in lawyer professional standards through August 2021. It also contains the Utah Supreme Court’s much-anticipated and recently-amended “Regulatory Sandbox Order,” which creates a system for testing and authorizing new ways to deliver legal services, and an expanded version of the Arizona Supreme Court’s 2020 Rule permitting Alternative Business Structures.

Finally, this Supplement contains a sophisticated analysis of the rules requiring or permitting disclosure of client misconduct, prepared by the Attorneys' Liability Assurance Society (ALAS) and intended to help lawyers, professors and students take a deep dive into this complex topic and appreciate the variety of state approaches to the issues raised.

Students, faculty, the practicing bar, and judges will find this book to be essential for examination of professional responsibility issues they confront daily and are even more likely to face in the future.
