Course Description:
This course will examine the law of lawyering and the rules of professional responsibility applicable to the legal profession. We will examine the various professional relationships between lawyers and their clients, lawyers and the public, lawyers and other lawyers, and lawyers and the judiciary. The objective of the course is to give students a working knowledge of the law governing lawyers and an appreciation for the ethical challenges they and their associates will face. We will focus our study on the A.B.A. Model Rules, the Arizona Rules of Professional Conduct, case law, and where instructive, other statutes and rules of professional conduct. A fairly traditional casebook approach will be supplemented with some assigned readings, as well as assigned exercises based on hypothetical representation situations and live presentations from leading Arizona attorneys involved with the representation of attorneys charged with ethical violations. The class will rely heavily on student preparation and extensive class participation.
