Ethical Problems in the Practice of Law is a problem-based casebook sure to generate lively class discussion. Using real-world problems and cases, with emphasis on issues students are likely to face in their early years of practice, it places students in the lawyers position to engage in simultaneous strategic and ethical analysis of each problem.

The Third Edition includes hundreds of new examples and introduces new material on current ethical issues. Outsourcing, contract lawyers, Internet advertising, and nonlawyer ownership of law firms are given thorough treatment, as are recent changes in rules and Justice Department policies. Sure to stimulate discussion, the companion website features a new recorded interview with the Guantanamo defense lawyer ordered to represent an unwilling defendant.
