This new Fourth Edition of Legal Ethics in the Practice of Law continues its practice-oriented, "real world," problem-driven approach to teaching legal ethics, the approach pioneered in this volume's first three editions. At the same time, this edition includes major revisions and updates that reflect the substantial changes occurring in the world of legal ethics since the last edition was published in 2007.
While the core problems remain largely unchanged, this new edition embodies global revisions that reflect the important changes in this field since the last edition: extensively revised narrative text, and new excerpts from dozens of articles and cases. After considerable deliberation, the authors consciously decided to choose full coverage over brevity to avoid any superficial treatment of the increasingly broad subject matter in this rapidly-developing area of law. The book continues to provide an extensive accompanying Teacher's Manual that assists all teachers experienced and new, doctrinal and clinical in choosing from this edition's inclusive menu of subjects.
