Engage your students with a contemporary approach that features:

  • thorough coverage of the ethics codes and other law governing lawyers, including legal malpractice, disqualification, wrongful discharge, and criminal malfeasance
  • concise, clear explanation of lawyer law in a readable question and answer format
  • an overview of the American legal profession and the challenges facing lawyers in the 21st century
  • more than 70 engaging problems for classroom discussion, some based on court opinions, others based on actual situations encountered by lawyers and law students
  • principal cases edited with care and presented with questions for discussion
  • tables and conceptual outlines that highlight relationships, illustrate concepts, and aid memory
  • photos of many lawyers and parties discussed in the text
  • more than 20 New Yorker cartoons illustrating classic ethical dilemmas

Thoroughly updated, the Second Edition now has a more flexible organization and coverage of important recent developments in the law, rules, and code, including:

  • updates reflecting recent revision of the state Rules of Professional Conduct in response to the Ethics 2000 Commission
  • new material on lawyers as counselors, the special duties of prosecutors, lawyer advertising, aggregate and class action settlements, and the revised Model Code of Judicial Conduct
  • new problems and cases
  • discussion of government challenges to the corporate attorney-client privilege
  • pedagogical fine-tuning based on feedback from scores of enthusiastic adopters and students at more than eighty US law schools

Respected scholars Lerman and Schrag have created an accessible, problem-based casebook that generates rich classroom discussion in courses in Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility.
