The Law of Lawyering

by Geoffrey C. Hazard, W William. Hodes

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 (
