Legal Ethics employs a variety of techniques to breathe life into a topic that can be sometimes tedious to study. Readers will be attracted to current and classic case law, hypothetical situations, many real-life examples of lawyer and nonlawyer instances of misconduct and discussions of famous and infamous people as their situations relate to the topic. Examples of this material include a discussion of the disbarment proceedings against President Bill Clinton and F. Lee Bailey and news events involving Hillary Clinton, Bill Gates, Newt Gingrich, Patty Hearst and Timothy McVeigh. Supporting material features more than 70 legal ethics Web sites, a complete glossary and significant ethics codes designed for paralegal and legal assistants.
