Model Rules of Professional Conduct (Paperback)
The Rules, with some variations, have been adopted in 50 jurisdictions. Federal, state, and local courts in all jurisdictions look to the Rules for guidance in resolving lawyer malpractice cases, disciplinary actions, disqualification issues, sanctions questions, and much more.
The Model Rules of Professional Conduct are intended to serve as a national framework for implementation of standards of professional conduct.
The American Bar Association Center for Professional Responsibility provides national leadership in developing and interpreting standards and scholarly resources in legal and judicial ethics, professional regulation, professionalism and client protection.
