Product Description

More than a "problems book," this is a problem-driven work, written by practicing lawyers with more than 30 years' combined experience teaching legal ethics. While Legal Ethics in the Practice of Law fully covers the academic subject area, it does so by simulating the reality of law practice through its use of real-life examples of ethical dilemmas as they occur in practicing the profession. This real-life context is enhanced by studying such topics as the culture of law firms, financial constraints and pressures and family obligations facing young lawyers, bias and diversity in the legal workplace, and the perils of stress and substance abuse in the profession.

Legal Ethics in the Practice of Law continues the innovations begun when this book was originally published in 1995, with new discussions of class actions, secrecy in settlements, legal malpractice, withdrawal of counsel and dealing with the client's fees and file, mediation, and "electronic ethics" and the effect of the Internet on law practice. The authors also include an up-to-the-minute evaluation of the state of unauthorized practice, multi-discipline practice, and admissions, with a special focus on the pleadings and rulings in the case of avowed racist Matthew Hale's efforts to gain admission to the Illinois bar.
