This seminar will examine these questions through various case studies, drawn from different industries, from the past as well as today. There is no casebook required; a desk book of materials for the course will be prepared and will be available from the Copy Center.
Students will be asked to place themselves in the circumstances found by the lawyers involved in each situation, and to explain whether and how they would have reacted differently, in light of the current Model Rules of Professional Conduct, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and other more recent legislation and case law. At the end of each exercise there may not be one "right" answer; rather, there may be a set of choices and options, each leading to different results. The goal of the course is to illustrate the variety and complexity of dilemmas lawyers can face when advising corporate clients, and help students use the legal tools available to them to work through these problems toward satisfactory solutions.
