Description

Taught as a web-based course. Course meets June 4 - July 8.

Professional Responsibility is about the law that governs lawyers.  We will explore the relationship between lawyers and clients; the protection of client confidences; representing organizational clients; conflicts of interest; duties to courts; and duties to adversaries and third persons.  We will also discuss the provision of legal services and the evolving business of law. The course fulfills the professional responsibility requirement for graduation and helps you prepare for the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE).
