Description
3 credits - Open to first year students

This survey course on lawyers' professional responsibilities is centered on two premises:  (1) The practice of law is a business as well as a profession, and economic incentives therefore matter; and (2) more than 90 percent of all lawsuits settle.  Thus, we will give special attention to the economic aspects of the attorney-client relationship and the various incentives that existing ethical Rules provide both lawyers and clients.  We will also pay particular attention to a wide range of ethical issues surrounding the settlement process.

This course fulfills the Professional Responsibility requirement for graduation.  The exam will be a three-hour in-class exam.
