This is a course that is intended to highlight the principal ethics issues facing civil and criminal litigators, highlighting both shared elements and important differences between the ethical regimes in civil and criminal cases. We will look at duties to the client, to the court, to third parties, and to the legal system. We will contrast the roles of lawyers in private civil litigation with those who do criminal defense or prosecution. There will be a special focus on problems in representing distinctive varieties of clients, including individuals whose competence is in issue, organizations, and classes of plaintiffs or defendants. We will also look at ethical issues as they arise in organizations of lawyers. And we will consider systemic issues, including judicial ethics and issues of access to justice.
You've got to have civil procedure. Criminal procedure and/or evidence would help a lot.
