In addition to the 12th edition, the authors now offer a Concise Version. Continuing the tradition that has made Morgan, Rotunda, and Dzienkowski's Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility a leader in its field, this concise version of the casebook uses problems to provide an overview of lawyers' professional responsibility. This condensed edition covers these topics in an abbreviated format. The concise coursebook is based on the 12th edition of Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility, which has been the most widely-used Professional Responsibility coursebook and the leader in its field since its first edition in 1976, over 35 years ago. It is designed for 2 hour classes and for seminars in legal ethics. As the law has evolved, so has the 12th edition. Yet, some schools and professors would like to offer a shorter course than the 12th edition anticipates. This abridged edition fits the bill. The authors have carefully designed it to be familiar to long time users, and accessible to new adopters. It focuses on the major issues of law governing the practice of law and the law of judicial disqualification, while shortening the volume of material and focusing on only the most essential topics. It continues its tradition of offering the most usable and up-to-date course materials to teach legal ethics and the law governing the practice of law. Students using this book will learn what they need to pass the state bar exam on Professional Responsibility yet also be introduced to the larger topics that the 12th edition covers more thoroughly. A comprehensive teacher's manual is available as well.

Continuing the tradition that has made it a leader in its field, this casebook uses problems to provide an overview of lawyers' professional responsibility. One of the most rapidly changing fields in American law, professional responsibility sees new issues, rules and cases each year, all of which are covered in this book. The authors have carefully designed this Thirteenth Edition to be familiar to long time users, and accessible to new ones. It continues its tradition of offering the most usable and up-to-date course materials to teach legal ethics and the law governing the practice of law. The new Thirteenth Edition provides resources to help law teachers address the many changes in the legal profession and professional responsibility law since the last edition in 2014. Among those changes are: ABA adoption of Model Rule 8.4(g) that forbids "harassment or discrimination by lawyers on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status or socioeconomic status in conduct related to the practice of law." Efforts to expand the availability of legal services to poor and middle-income persons who do not now use lawyers. Changing methods of delivering legal services, both those used by traditional law firms and services proposed by non-traditional providers. Changes in discovery rules and other procedural requirements that create new lawyer obligations to opponents and the court. Efforts to simplify and clarify rules relating to lawyer marketing. Use of judicial ethics rules to define Constitutional due process requirements that lawyers may raise on behalf of their clients.

This text is directed toward the learning outcomes students need and want in a basic professional responsibility course: mastering the doctrine regarding the regulation of law practice (including express instruction on reading rules and researching the law of professional responsibility); forming a vision of themselves as an attorney and a career plan that fits that vision; learning to identify the risks of discipline, liability, or business and reputational loss; and acquiring skills to practice law in a way that reduces those risks. The book provides clear learning outcomes for each unit, learning tools such as self-tests, checklists and graphics. Each chapter includes practice problems, including exercises designed to integrate skills such as reflection, research, counseling, and drafting. An appendix provides students advice on preparing for the multistate professional responsibility exam, with practice multiple-choice problems.This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law & Associate Dean for Faculty and Academic Development, Washburn University School of Law.
