Overview

The Law of Lawyering shows how to approach concrete problems that arise in everyday practice while staying within the letter and spirit of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct. It provides the full text of each Model Rule provision in sequence, followed by the authors' guidance and commentary, which put the rule into context, help identify its key features, and show its relation to other Rules and the ALI's Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers. Clear, realistic examples demonstrate how each Rule applies in practice.

Substantially revised in this two-volume Fourth Edition to reflect the recent revisions of to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, this essential book reflects the latest developments in the law governing lawyer conduct, not only lawyer discipline, but also legal malpractice, suits for breach of fiduciary duty, fee-dispute litigation and fee forfeiture, and disqualification of counsel for conflict of interest.
