    The client-lawyer relationship is a consensual one. Situations arise, however, in which a lawyer is appointed to represent someone who declines the representation. Whatever purposes may be served by requiring lawyers to provide services relating to such a person, the person refusing representation is not entitled to expect of the lawyer the duties arising out of the client-lawyer relationship. The lawyer's legal duties -- if any -- are defined in such circumstances by the order of the assigning tribunal, and the lawyer's ethical duties are limited to those obligations a lawyer owes under the Rules to tribunals or to persons other than a client.
