Today's lawyer is obliged to act as a representative of clients, officer of the legal system, and public citizen. The difficult problems of "professional responsibility" arise not from lawyers misunderstanding right from wrong, but from the overlap and resulting conflict of these three functions. Addresses the constant interaction of lawyers through the considerably leaner, problem-oriented second edition. Most reading materials and notes that follow are designed to help the student or at least respond to each problem; some material and notes raise further, related issues. New readings abound, although the authors have retained a number of principal cases and readings most helpful in dealing with particular issues.
