Description: Writing in his direct and lively style, Stephen Gillers explores the subtleties and nuances of the legal and ethical rules governing lawyers and judges. From great teaching cases, timely materials, and realistic problems, students come away with new insight, equipped to detect and avoid improper conduct over the course of their professional careers.Refined through years of classroom use, this casebook offers:Comprehensive coverage covers the full range of professional responsibility issues in less space (about 20 percent shorter than the 9th edition).Well-balanced mix of cases, secondary sources, timely materials (often drawn from recent headlines), engaging problems, and challenging notes.Goes beyond the rules in recognizing that the law is not necessarily self-evident and covers many subtleties; Gillers discusses the rules from different perspectives.
