Legal Ethics

This course is an examination of some of the ethical problems encountered by lawyers in the practice of law and issues facing the profession as a whole. Topics include: admission to the bar, lawyer regulation, lawyers’ duties to clients and others, confidentiality and privilege, representing conflicting interests, corporate lawyers' responsibility, client fraud, lawyer as gatekeeper, obligation to represent an unpopular client, access to justice, and lawyer wellness. We will examine the application of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct to those problems and discuss the difference(s) between obligations under the RPC and individual moral obligations. This course satisfies the ethics requirement for graduation.
