This text is directed toward the learning outcomes students need and want in a basic professional responsibility course: mastering the doctrine regarding the regulation of law practice (including express instruction on reading rules and researching the law of professional responsibility); forming a vision of themselves as an attorney and a career plan that fits that vision; learning to identify the risks of discipline, liability, or business and reputational loss; and acquiring skills to practice law in a way that reduces those risks. The book provides clear learning outcomes for each unit, learning tools such as self-tests, checklists and graphics. Each chapter includes practice problems, including exercises designed to integrate skills such as reflection, research, counseling, and drafting. An appendix provides students advice on preparing for the multistate professional responsibility exam, with practice multiple-choice problems.
This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific.
