    Legal Profession: Traversing the Ethical Minefield (21638). 3 units. Many law school courses make you better able to help your clients fulfill their hopes and dreams. This course is designed to help you fulfill your own professional obligations while also providing services to your clients consistent with the fiduciary obligations to which they are entitled. Through the use of hypothetical problems grounded in the real world, the class will explore many of the challenging dilemmas that confront the conscientious lawyer who wants to conform his or her conduct to the applicable rules of professional conduct and other law governing lawyers. At the same time we will consider whether the present rules of professional conduct properly address the issues with which the profession must grapple in striking delicate balances among the obligations of lawyers vis-à-vis clients, lawyers as officers of the court and lawyers as citizens. The class will use a casebook, Susan Martyn & Lawrence Fox, Traversing the Ethical Minefield, and a standards book, Susan Martyn, Lawrence Fox & Brad Wendel, The Law Governing Lawyers. Class attendance and participation are essential. Enrollment capped at twenty-five.Scheduled examination. L. Fox.
