This course will explore the ethical issues facing all lawyers in the practice of law. We will focus on the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct as well as ethics opinions, statutes, regulations and relevant case law, with consideration of California ethics rules on select issues. The course’s aim is to provide students the tools to identify and analyze ethical questions from a practical perspective. We will utilize real and hypothetical case studies to contextualize the various rules and learn a process for facing ethical dilemmas. This course is interactive and requires participation in the form of class discussion and small-group exercises. For this reason, attendance is required. Ten percent (10%) of the final grade will be determined by class participation.
