Professional Responsibility: A Student's Guideby Ronald D. Rotunda
This one volume book is intended to offer law students an analysis of, and an initiation to, this complex topic by examining the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, and the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct. Many states and federal courts have followed the templates that these ABA model rules have proposed. Law students who intend to practice law must master the intricacies of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, because these Rules will govern them. And, even though few law students will become judges, they must also master the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct so they will know when, for example, to seek disqualification of a judge, or when they should not present a gift to a judge. Because the American Bar Association has been the undisputed leader in developing ethics rules, this book is organized around the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and the ABA Model Rules of Judicial Conduct. These rules have become very influential with the courts. This text also analyzes the law under the ABA Model Code of Professional Responsibility, because some jurisdictions still base their law on the ABA Model Code. The book also examines the contributions of the American Law Institute's recently completed RESTATEMENT OF THE LAW GOVERNING LAWYERS, THIRD.
