    Professional responsibility is at the core of delivering effective legal services. Paralegals are expected to obey the ethics rules by which their lawyer employers are bound. To help paralegals stay on top of ethics issues, the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility has updated The Paralegal's Guide to Professional Responsibility. The fifth edition reviews the ethics issues that are relevant to paralegals, legal assistants, secretaries, and other employees of law firms, corporations, and law-related organizations and offers guidance that can be adapted to practice in any jurisdiction. This edition encompasses all recent changes to the Model Rules, along with updated references to court decisions and other resources. The book is designed to help paralegals understand key areas of the Model Rules and related ethics issues. Subjects include:

    • what constitutes the unauthorized practice of law
    • what a lawyer cannot delegate to a paralegal
    • the issues of competence and diligence in a paralegal's work
    • the paralegal and confidentiality
    • conflicts of interest
    • client funds and property
    • advertising
    • legal fees and employee compensation
    • Develop ethics research skills

    In addition to a thorough examination of the Model Rules as they relate to paralegals, the Guide provides an introduction to basic texts and materials used in legal ethics research and includes:

    • concise explanations of the law of professional responsibility
    • tools for identifying and resolving ethical problems
    • practical tips to use in everyday practice
    • a method for categorizing most legal ethics materials
    • Time-saving features and appendices

    To help you find the information you need quickly, the book includes time saving features such as chapter summaries, quick-reference text boxes, bullet points, and easy-to-find chapter divisions related to specific subtopics. The Guide also includes an index, a glossary of terms and several appendices containing requirements, rules, codes, research aids and guidelines of use to the legal assistant.
