This course will address the legal ethics (or, "law of lawyering") as it applies to government lawyers. A basic background in the ABA Model Rules, the California Rules of Professional Conduct, and the State Bar Act (Cal. Bus & Prof Code section 6000 et seq.) will be provided, but the deeper focus will be on the special rules that apply to government lawyers, the contexts in which they practice law, and whether or not government lawyers have a "higher duty." We anticipate substantial coverage of prosecutors, agency lawyers, and lawyers working at the DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel. Students may take a final or submit a paper.
This course satisfies the Professional Responsibility Requirement.
