Product Description

Essential 6 page laminated quick reference to the common practice of professional responsibility among attorneys, designed for students of law and those already practicing to see the significance of the details within the larger scheme of the law. Reviewers say – “concise and easy to read”, “a must have” & “perfect for the MPRE”. The American Bar Association mandated all American law schools require this course after questionable behavior of a number of lawyers following the Watergate scandal. Expertly written and based on ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct adopted by the ABA House of Delegates in 1983, with so much to retain in school and beyond this guide is the quick reference you need at an unmatched value.
