Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Known for helping students develop the ability to make sound judgments, the concise Professional Responsibility: Problems of Practice and the Profession, Fifth Edition, is adaptable to a host of teaching styles. Scores of realistic problems and hallmark hypothetical problems call on students to develop a cogent philosophy of lawyering as they master basic concepts and prepare for the MPRE. Modular, flexible organization allows professors to adapt the material to a variety of courses and clinical programs. An extensive Teachers Manual is full of suggested lesson plans, questions and answers, role-playing models, and sample syllabi for two- and three-hour classes. The Fifth Edition presents a major reorganization of the problem-based classic to accommodate a doctrinal approach, while preserving its unique emphasis on particular areas of practice. Comprehensive treatment of technology shows its effect on every aspect of the law. In keeping with the casebook's focused, concise quality, fewer, more selective cases of particular importance for the upper-level problem course are featured. As well as updating problems and discussion throughout the text, multiple choice questions (moved to the website for the course to facilitate addition and rotation of problems) now reflect the new format of the MPRE. Through the many problems that require keen professional judgment, Professor Crystal emphasizes more than ever the need for students to develop a philosophy of lawyering. Hallmark features of Professional Responsibility: Problems of Practice and the Profession:
  • Hypothetical problems that develop students' ability to make sound judgments
  • Emphasis on guiding students to articulate a cogent philosophy of lawyering
  • Innovative, flexible organization suited to a variety of courses and clinical programs
-Organized by major doctrinal concepts, such as confidentiality and conflicts of interest -Offers alternative organization by area of practice -Modular organization for professor choice
  • Multiple choice questions (located on the course website to facilitate addition and rotation of problems) to prepare students for the MPRE
New to the updated Fifth Edition:
  • A major reorganization to accommodate a doctrinal approach, yet preserve the unique emphasis on particular areas of practice
  • Sweeping coverage of technology's effect on the practice of law
  • Fewer, more selective cases of particular importance to the upper-level problem course
  • More precise focus on Professor Crystal's insistence that lawyers develop a philosophy of lawyering
