Ethical Problems in the Practice of Law by Professor Lisa G. Lerman

Description

Covering all of the essential issues and topics, Ethical Problems in the Practice of Law, Second Edition, offers straightforward exposition and a combination of principal cases and real-case problems that generate lively class discussion and encourage strategic analysis.

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.
