305 - Professional Responsibility (2 hours)*
The course is designed to acquaint you with the lawyer’s obligations—both individual and as a member of the legal profession—to the world in which the lawyer (you, very soon) lives and works. In addition to a discussion of ethical concerns inherent in the practice of law, we will cover lawyer regulation, primarily under the Model Rules of Professional Conduct. We also will consider what it means for you to become a member of the legal profession at a time of economic pressure, technological advancement, and international competition.
* This course may be offered for 3 hours during some years.
