Product Description

This Law In A Nutshell: Legal Ethics digests the Model Rules of Professional Responsibility in a critical fashion. It is an ideal complement to a casebook that explores deeper theoretical issues. In 2002, for only the third time, the American Bar Association adopted a major revised version of its ethics rules. This book incorporates all the changes made to the old Model Rules, in an historic context that lets the student understand problems with prior versions of the Rules and the Model Code. The authors also discuss and analyze the role of the American Law Institute's new Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers, 3d.
