Professional Responsibility

This course is about the law that governs lawyers. We will explore the relationship between lawyers and clients; the protection of client confidences; conflicts of interest; duties to courts; and duties to adversaries and third persons. We will consider these issues in various contexts—whether the lawyer is representing private parties, the government, or the public interest. The course fulfills the professional responsibility requirement for graduation and helps prepare a student for the MPRE.
