Using a mixture of role playing, hypotheticals, materials from the casebook, and the ABA Model Rules, we analyze ethical problems facing practicing lawyers. Our primary focus is on two issues: (1) duties owed to clients, including confidentiality and loyalty; and (2) ethics in advocacy. We also examine ethical problems in bar admission, attorney discipline, and legal advertising.
