Summary

The new edition of this concise version of Therese A. Cannon s highly successful textbook supplies brief coverage of ethical principles from the perspective of the practicing paralegal.

The revision builds on the strengths that made the book so highly regarded:

  • current coverage of all the major areas of legal ethics, emphasizing how the rules affect paralegals
  • authoritative presentation combined with clear and readable pedagogy - Each chapter begins with an overview, followed by well-written text in a well-organized format. Key terms are introduced in italics, and marginal definitions help students master the terminology. Review questions, hypotheticals, and discussion questions and projects reinforce the material.
  • useful appendices provide the text of relevant ethical codes
  • the expertise of Therese A. Cannon, a well-known and highly respected legal educator
  • flexible text is ideal for short courses, and can be used in substantive courses for additional ethics coverage
  • a complete teaching package that includes an Instructor s Manual and PowerPoint slides

Important updates address recent revisions to the ethics rules:

  • full treatment of the ABA Model Rules on which many of the state rules were revised in 2002
  • new hypotheticals throughout the book reflect changes
  • new ethics advisory opinions and court cases, particularly those on conflicts and unauthorized practice of law
  • more material on ethical concerns surrounding use of new technology in the law office
