LAW 2470 - Professional Responsibility

Description
This course covers the sources and application of legal ethics rules, including the role of lawyer as "advocate" and "counselor." Special attention is given to the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct and the Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct. Course coverage also includes the requirements for admission to practice law; the lawyer disciplinary system; a lawyer's fiduciary duties to a client and duties owed to the courts and to society. The ABA Code of Judicial Conduct is reviewed to understand the ethical obligations of those who serve in a judicial capacity. Students are encouraged to contemplate the type of lawyer they want to become, with the course hopefully inspiring some of those future contemplations. A lawyer's potential civil liability and constitutional responsibilities (e.g. effective assistance of counsel) are also studied.
