Details:

This class examines the ethical issues attorneys confront in diverse areas of practice. There are two primary questions for this course. First, what are (minimal) ethical expectations attorneys face from the point of view of the law, the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, and from state bar regulation? Second, why do good attorneys and law firms do bad things? However, the class will explore even a broader set of ethical questions including how attorney ethics are defined, depicted in pop culture, and what type of conduct lawyers should aspire to in their practice. The course will also explore the relationships among personal values, the law, and the rules of lawyering, seeking to ascertain strategies regarding how to reconcile them.
