Abstract:

"This problem-oriented text is designed for use in elective courses on legal malpractice, professional liability, advanced legal ethics, or advanced torts, or in required professional responsibility classes that want to focus more on malpractice than on discipline. Each chapter includes explanatory text that relies on recent cases, code provisions, statutes, and commentary. A few principal cases offer insight into the current state of legal malpractice law. The problems, including many that are based on actual controversies, deal with liability concerns that practitioners encounter. The book integrates malpractice prevention lessons. Relevant ethics rules are discussed. A comprehensive teacher's manual is available."--Publisher's website.
