Lawyers are regulated by moral, professional and legal constraints in discharging their responsibilities as representatives of clients, officers of the legal system, and public citizens having special responsibilities for the quality of justice. This is a survey course in professional responsibility, with emphasis on the law governing lawyers. Using cases and hypotheticals, the course explores dilemmas that are likely to occur during the practice of law. Emphasis is on application of the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct and where the Model Rules conflict with the Model Code of Professional Responsibility and the Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers.
