This second edition of Mastering Professional Responsibility presents a concise explanation of the rules and concepts of lawyer professional responsibility. In creating the book, the author's goal is to provide students in the typical law school professional responsibility course with a source that explains the relevant rules and concepts in a way understandable to novices to the legal profession. In furtherance of that goal, the book provides a straightforward treatment of the subject, with special attention to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and all recent amendments to those rules through the date of publication. For each topic, the book briefly addresses any relevant rationales, but primarily focuses on explaining the parameters of the applicable standards in a clear, understandable, step-by step manner. A typical treatment of a topic includes not only a clear explanation of each standard, often broken into manageable concepts, but also a simple example illustrating the application of that standard. These easy-to-understand examples are designed to facilitate learning in students who, in contrast to practicing lawyers, have not yet had the opportunity to develop an understanding of the context of law practice. This book is an excellent accompaniment to the typical professional responsibility course. The book is also a good preparatory tool for the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam, which is a requirement for admission for most states. This book is part of the Carolina Academic Press Mastering Series edited by Russell L. Weaver, University of Louisville School of Law.

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.
