Professional Responsibility: Ethical Lawyering in Context

Law 266R






This course examines how lawyers face and address dilemmas in the context of everyday practice. Based on a text that presents empirical research on ethical decision making in a variety of practice areas, we will devote each week to a different context of lawyering, including: family law, immigration law, personal injury law, corporate litigation, transnational lawyering, in-house practice, securities practice, patent law, prosecutorial work, criminal defense, public interest lawyering and legal services work. For each context, we look at the ethical issues that commonly arise and the rules and regulations that govern lawyers' conduct.

The course satisfies the Professional Responsibility requirement and is to some extent duplicative of the basic professional Responsibility course such that  both may not be taken.
