Extractions: Jenkins' Membership Memo 2 (Spring 2002) "Every lawyer is responsible for observance of the Rules of Professional Conduct. A lawyer should also aid in securing their observance by other lawyers. Neglect of these responsibilities compromises the independence of the profession and the public interest which it serves." Model Rules of Professional Conduct Preamble. All lawyers are faced with these responsibilities but some may have no idea where to find the necessary information. The following article will provide an overview of print and electronic resources on ethics for lawyers. A copy of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct (Model Rules) is a must for researching legal ethics. There are many sources for the Model Rules . One of the most popular is the ABA/BNA Lawyers Manual on Professional Conduct (Manual) . This multi-volume loose-leaf manual contains the Model Rules adopted on August 2, 1983 and its predecessor, the

Extractions: The basic ethics seminar course covers a traditional ethics curriculum in a relatively traditional order. It begins with the client-lawyer relationship, proceeds through a lengthy analysis of the tension between the client-lawyer relationship and the lawyer's obligations to the justice system and society, and concludes with discussions of economic issues (billing, advertising and solicitation, legal services and pro bono work). The course specifically addresses both bias and substance abuse in the profession, and has among its recurring themes the pressures faced by young law firm associates, the effect of a law firm's "culture" on the ability to practice ethically, and the tension between acting morally while remaining within the bounds of legal ethics. Course coverage also focuses on several practice areas often unrecognized or minimized, which we find will directly impact working lives of many of our students. The most significant of these issues are: the ethical dilemmas facing insurance defense counsel;

Extractions: Prepared by Mary Rumsey Table of Contents The rules that regulate lawyers' conduct are generally promulgated by the ABA and then adopted by states. The earliest standards adopted by the ABA were the Canons of 1908. In 1969/1970, the ABA adopted the Code of Professional Conduct. Many states adopted this Code. Some of these states switched to the Model Rules of Professional Responsibility when the ABA adopted them in 1983; others retained the Code. Thus, both the Model Rules and the Code of Professional Conduct are still published. They appear in several sources (see Standards and Opinions, below). Amendments to the ABA standards are noted in the annual ABA Reports and in the monthly ABA Journal . The ABA's Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and its predecessor committees have issued ethics opinions since 1924 (see Standards and Opinions, below) In Minnesota, the relevant rules are the

Extractions: Canon Two of the Code of Professional Responsibility recites that a lawyer should assist the profession in fulfilling its duty to make legal counsel available and should render pro bono services. Regardless of whether lawyers consider this axiomatic norm to be an aspirational goal or a "duty" as the Canon states, consumers and legislatures are forcing the organized bar to compete with prepaid legal services plans, pro se help centers, small claims courts, certified nonlawyer mediators, registered nonlawyer real estate settlement agents, and courthouse assistance projects. In addition, the Internet and software companies have provided the consumer with a variety of self-help resources including legal research and legal forms or documents. Some members of the bar insist that the mandatory bars should "crack down" on this intrusion using the unauthorized practice of law (UPL) rules.
Extractions: Download .pdf version of Guide Researching issues in professional responsibility is a complex process and requires use of materials beyond judicial decisions and statutes. At the core of issues of legal ethics are the rules governing the conduct of lawyers and judges that are adopted by each state. These state rules are based on model rules adopted by the American Bar Association, most recently the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and the Code of Judicial Conduct. In addition, each state bar association has some mechanism for enforcing the rules through disciplinary proceedings and through the issuance of opinion letters on ethical issues submitted to it. You may need to consult bar association ethics opinions, the Model Rules, and the version of the rules of professional conduct for your particular state. Case law research can also be complicated because ethics issues can arise from attorney discipline proceedings and such diverse substantive areas as legal malpractice and criminal appeals. This research guide concentrates on materials other than case law, although a few tips on finding judicial decisions in the area of legal ethics are included.
