Law of Lawyering shows how to approach concrete problems that arise in everyday practice while staying within the letter and spirit of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct. It provides the full text of each Model Rule provision in sequence, followed by the authors' guidance and commentary, which put the rule into context, help identify its key features, and show its relation to other Rules and the ALI's Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers. Clear, realistic examples demonstrate how each Rule applies in practice.

Substantially revised in this two-volume Third Edition to reflect the recent revisions of to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct,
this essential book reflects the latest developments in the law governing lawyer conduct, not only lawyer discipline, but also legal malpractice, suits for breach of fiduciary duty, fee-dispute litigation and fee forfeiture, and disqualification of counsel for conflict of interest.

Editorial Reviews

New edition of a two-volume set that deals with the "law of lawyering"<-->the range of legally binding norms that govern the conduct of lawyers who live and practice in the real world. Hazard (law, U. of Pennsylvania) and Hodes (law, Indiana U.) presents 66 chapters that discuss the three sources of norms (code law, other law, and moral obligation) and how these norms sometimes coincide to indicate a single course of action, and at other times diverge and clash in a way that forces lawyers to compromise one norm or another. Topics include the client-lawyer relationship, the lawyer as counselor or advocate, transactions with persons other than clients, forms of law practice and the unauthorized practice of law, public service, information about legal services, and maintaining the integrity of the legal profession. Three-ring binder format. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
