    Written for law school students, Professional Responsibility provides comprehensive information on every aspect of practicing the law with professionalism and the highest of ethical standards.

    Readers are first introduced to the history of legal ethics, which dates back to the time of ancient Rome. The book then discusses the American Bar Association's Model Rules of Professional Conduct. In the subsequent eight chapters students consider the rules in detail and see how they are applied in bar admission, duty of competence and malpractice, the attorney-client relationships, and the setting of fees. The text also addresses confidentiality, conflict, the duty to file in good faith, attorney advertising, and lawyer criticism of the judiciary.

    Filled with examples and stories from legal history, Professional Responsibility successfully brings professional rules to life while making them both accessible and comprehensible. It is an excellent choice for courses in legal ethics and legal practice.
