Prof. Monroe Freedman Co-Authors New Book, Understanding Lawyers’ Ethics

Professor Monroe Freedman has co-authored a recently published book titled Understanding Lawyers’ Ethics, 4th Edition. Along with Professor Abbe Smith of Georgetown Law, Freedman adopts a theoretical approach to understanding the role of lawyers’ ethics in the American legal system. An abstract can be found below:

“Rather than serving as a review guide for individual states’ ethical rules, this text instead focuses on the foundational basis for the development of ethical rules in American jurisprudence and analyzes the structure of the American Bar Association’s model rules of ethics. This theoretical approach provides students and practitioners the opportunity to develop an understanding of the fundamental principles underpinning the ethical rules that govern legal practice throughout the 50 states. In addition, real-life examples help readers understand how the theoretical principles discussed throughout the text arise in actual legal practice.”
