Professional Responsibility M - Tibbles


Course Title

Professional Responsibility M



First Assignment

 The required casebook and required code book for the Professional Responsibility course are:   


Lerman & Schrag, ETHICAL PROBLEMS IN THE PRACTICE OF LAW: Concise Third Edition for Two-Credit Courses (Aspen 2013) ISBN 978-1-4548-3070-2 

   This is a new casebook for this course.  The casebook used in prior semesters will not be used.  


The codebook for the course is:  

   Gillers, Simon, & Perlman, Regulation of Lawyers: Statutes and Standards   Concise Edition 2013 (Wolters Kluwer 2013)   ISBN 978-1-4548-1364-4 

       This codebook was used in the evening section of Professional Responsibility in the 2013 Spring Semester.  Use of second hand copies of this edition is permitted.   


The first reading assignment for the course will be:    


Gillers, “Can a Good lawyer Be A Bad Person?”, 2 Journal of the Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics 131-151 (1999) 


I believe that the Gillers article is relatively easily accessible on-line.  Please use your favorite research technique to access it.  


It is likely that near the beginning of classes, I will also make an initial assignment from the casebook.
