More About This Textbook

Overview

Written from a paralegal perspective, this book uses plain English and an upbeat tone to keep readers engaged in the ethics of the legal profession. Its unique approach focuses on researching one’s own state laws and codes–and applying those to cases, collaborative assignments and hypothetical situations in the text. This edition features chapter-by-chapter updates, In the News articles, and video case studies designed to spark class discussion. With its lively narrative and state-specific approach, it tackles important ethical issues and shows how to research possible courses of action.
