Lawyer Law (2005) (Table of Contents)
Thomas D. Morgan
This book should be useful in getting a quick, reliable account of the law on topics of the reader’s interest. As with research of any serious legal issue, however, such a snapshot may not present a complete picture. To do more thorough research into the issues presented in this book, and lawyer should consult a recent version of the ABA’s Annotated Model Rules of Professional Conduct, and the full Restatement Third, The Law Governing Lawyers, including its Reporter’s Notes and annual pocket parts. Other useful references may also be found in the ABA/BNA Lawyers’ Manual on Professional Conduct, including its excellent Current Reports. In addition, the court rules governing lawyer conduct in the jurisdictions in which the lawyer acted or will act—and cases interpreting those rules—may supersede the statement of general law found in this book.
Model Rules of Professional Conduct 2014 (Table of Contents)
ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility
The Model Rules of Professional Conduct are intended to serve as a national framework for implementation of standards of professional conduct. Although the Commission endeavored to harmonize and accommodate the views of all participants, no set of national standards that speaks to such a diverse constituency as the legal profession can resolve each issue to the complete satisfaction of every affected party. Undoubtedly there will be those who take issue with one or another of the Rules’ provisions. Indeed, such dissent from individual provisions is expected. And the Model Rules, like all model legislation, will be subject to modification at the level of local implementation. Viewed as a whole, however, the Model Rules represent a responsible approach to the ethical practice of law and are consistent with professional obligations imposed by other law, such as constitutional, corporate, tort, fiduciary and agency law.
