9780132436472: Ethics for the Legal Professional (6th Edition)

Ethics for the Legal Professional sets the standard for professional responsibility books. Now in its sixth edition, the book has been reorganized to reflect the changes in the paralegal profession.  It begins with concrete concepts that have been given some clear direction in the courts and state legislatures (UPL confidentiality and conflicts) before moving on to the more technical, rule-driven concepts (advertising, billing and fees), and then to the most abstract rules (competence, zealous representation and integrity).  Written from the viewpoint of the paralegal, this book uses plain English and an upbeat tone to keep readers engaged. Still the most popular book in its genre, the 6th Edition continues to tackle the most important ethical issues facing paralegals today in a frank, conversational style.  Written from the viewpoint of the paralegal not a lawyer. Avoids legalese and jargon so the material is easier to understand.  Reorganized to reflect the changes in the paralegal professionbeginning with what paralegals and lawyers are and ending with a discussion of the umbrella duty of integrity. Helps make the material more relevant to the paralegal and increases their opportunity for understanding. Includes a more complete discussion of client trust accounts as well as pro bono service, referral fees, types of fee agreements, retainers and more!  Legal professionals.
