Description

The condensed second edition of Professional Responsibility in the Life of the Lawyer introduces students to the legal and ethical issues they will encounter along their career paths. The law governing lawyers is presented at every career stage, from seeking admission to the bar, to acquiring clients and representing them in various practice areas, and then to the pursuit of mid-career opportunities and eventual retirement. In every chapter, students are placed in the role of lawyer and asked to solve realistic problems by applying professional conduct rules and other sources of law. The book’s “Profiles of Attorney Professionalism” introduce students to positive lawyer role models.
