Description

In addition to the 13th edition, the authors now offer an Abridged Version. Continuing the tradition that has made Morgan, Rotunda, and Dzienkowski’s Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility a leader in its field, this abridged version of the casebook uses problems to provide an overview of lawyers' professional responsibility. This condensed edition covers these topics in an abbreviated format. The abridged coursebook is based on the 13th edition of Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility, which has been the most widely-used Professional Responsibility coursebook and the leader in its field since its first edition in 1976, over 40 years ago. It is designed for 2 hour classes and for seminars in legal ethics.

As the law has evolved, so has the 13th edition. Yet, some schools and professors would like to offer a shorter course than the 13th edition anticipates. This abridged edition fits the bill. The authors have carefully designed it to be familiar to long time users, and accessible to new adopters. It focuses on the major issues of law governing the practice of law and the law of judicial disqualification, while shortening the volume of material and focusing on only the most essential topics. It continues its tradition of offering the most usable and up-to-date course materials to teach legal ethics and the law governing the practice of law. Students using this book will learn what they need to pass the state bar exam on Professional Responsibility yet also be introduced to the larger topics that the 13th edition covers more thoroughly.
