*In-House Lawyering: Ethics and Professional Responsibility (20123). 3 units. This course will provide an introduction for identifying, analyzing and resolving (or at least mitigating) ethical challenges and professional responsibility issues. The challenges that corporate (or "in-house") counsel face will be our primary context because corporate counsel, as opposed to attorneys operating within a law firm or a government agency generally must identify and resolve ethical issues with limited external support. This course will be a thematic weekly seminar, with each class generally being dedicated to a specific issue or representational situation. Guest lecturers will occasionally supplement class discussion. There will be no foundational text, but students will need to purchase a bound copy of the ABA model rules and the Restatement. The readings for the course will be published opinions, law journal articles, and articles from the popular media (which will be available on the Internet or through Westlaw/Lexis). Previous exposure to professional responsibility concepts (e.g., another ethics class or prior preparation for the MPRE) is useful but is by no means a pre-requisite. Enrollment will be capped at thirty. Self-scheduled examination. B.T. Daly.
Note: The first class meeting will be on Tuesday, September 1, from 6:10 until 9 pm, to replace the designated Monday class that was scheduled to meet on Friday, September 4. Thereafter, the class will resume meeting at its regular Monday time.
