Many law professors aim to probe deep ethical issues in class. But they also need to cover the material that the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination requires. The Rotunda Nutshell fulfils that need as it digests the Model Rules in an engaging, analytical, and often critical way. In a surprisingly pithy manner, this book places the Rules in an historic context that lets the student understand problems with prior versions of the Rules and the Model Code. The Nutshell also analyzes the American Law Institute's Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers, Third. This approach frees up precious class time for important normative issues. And, this Nutshell helps your students come up with better answers to your Socratic questions than you anticipated. This book has proved so popular as an explanation of the basic principles of legal ethics that it has been translated into Japanese.

"Addresses the professional, legal, and moral constraints that regulate lawyers. It covers the responsibilities of attorneys as representatives of clients, officers of the legal system, and public citizens having special responsibilities for the quality of justice." From ALI website.
“Much of what lawyers do in practice requires the exercise of professional judgment in the face of uncertainty: governing principles can be murky, and factual contexts vary widely. This book is designed to assist lawyers in assessing risks and making informed judgments about their professional obligations using all the relevant aspects of the law of lawyering.” From the Introduction.
