Sources of Law Regulating the Practice of Law

Attorneys must conform their conduct to a wide range of rules drawn from a variety of sources. This program is designed to review these sources of law governing attorney conduct. This program is divided into three sections: exploring rules of discipline, sources of civil and criminal liabilities, and sources of control by courts and administrative tribunals. The lesson assumes some basic familiarity with common materials of study in the professional responsibility course and are best used as an adjunct to course study or a review.
