This completely updated, definitive text on legal ethics and professional responsibility for legal assistants provides timely coverage of all ethical principles from the perspective of the practicing paralegal. The book includes: specific rules from the ABA Model Code and Model Rules on which state codes are based: references To The relevant ABA Guidelines For The Utilization of Legal Assistant Services; and ethical canons of the two major paralegal associations. Some features of special interest: The hallmarks that have Cannon's book so successful have been retained: extremely clear explanatory text accompanied by excellent examples; each chapter includes cases that demonstrate how the principles and rules are applied to legal assistants, review questions, and discussion questions that can be assigned as projects; Therese Cannon is a well-know and respected leader in paralegal education, and her book is regarded as one of the best available for paralegal students. The new Third Edition offers: new cases and trends in how states are addressing ethical isues involving paralegals; updated sections on unauthorized practice of law, non-lawyer legal services providers, conflicts of interest, and regulation; new information in chapter on confidentiality, particularly addressing changes resulting from technological innovations, and new cases dealing with confidentiality; coverage of new state ethical guidelines for using paralegals; and appendices updated with latest versions of ethical codes.
