Unlike most Professional Responsibility books on the market, this book integrates ethical and legal perspectives with the best available empirical literature on the legal profession. It covers all of the basic ethics topics covered in the standard professional responsibility course, but it blends the coverage of doctrine with an in-depth survey of the legal profession. It links legal ethics with materials drawn from other disciplines, especially sociology, economics, and psychology, to help students appreciate actual practice realities and the implications for daily experience. It includes some of the classic cases and materials on professional responsibility and also features up-to-date problems and materials on current issues. This is the only PR book on the market that provides sufficient explanation of basic legal concepts and the operation of the legal system to make it suitable for first-year students. It includes an extensive teachers' manual with sample syllabi, detailed advice about how to teach the materials, written instructions for role-play exercises, and sample exam questions.
