Welcome to our community of professional responsibility teachers! This web site provides teaching resources, ranging from syllabi and powerpoints to real time updates and videos. The web site accompanies our casebook Professional Responsibility: A Contemporary Approach (3d ed. 2017). The Casebook uses the problem method and offers learning outcomes, multiple choice assessment questions, role plays and simulations, and an interactive online version that includes short audio lectures. Please feel free to share your ideas and resources with our community of adopters.
You may review the Table of Contents here.
We look forward to getting to know you and working with you and our fellow adopters.

A preview of November’s ABA Journal Ethics piece by textbook co-author Bruce Green, discussing New York City Bar Association’s Professional Ethics Committee’s recent Formal Opinion 2017-4, which illustrates how legal services lawyers can help clients navigate the legal complexities of Medicaid while leaving it to the clients’ caseworkers to provide other necessary help.

Welcome back; it’s hard for me to believe it’s Fall semester already. This summer, I taught a fully -asynchronous PR course @ Wake Forest University School of Law using our new 3d edition.
This new edition has several innovative components, for online courses and traditional courses, including multiple choice questions via CasebookPlus that students can take as they study the text, audio mini-lectures on particularly challenging or important content, and learning outcomes tracked to the multiple choice questions – great for formative assessment exercises!
We’ve also included new role-play simulations in each chapter.
Access sample syllabi (including for 2- and 3-credit courses) here, and email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like the password to our power point slides for each chapter.
If it’s your first time using CasebookPlus, check out this tutorial.
Welcome! We look forward to your feedback.
The Chronicle of Higher Education (August 11, 2017), as well as social media, has been covering the unfolding story relating to the UF General Counsel Jamie Keith. The saga began with a Title IX investigation which involved UF wide receiver Antonio Colloway, represented by attorneys Huntley Johnson and Amy Osteryoung. The article below focuses on the report of the internal audit conducted by UF, now that Ms. Keith has resigned her post. But this entire case provides an opportunity to explore the role of the in-house counsel, and the multiple ethical duties and challenges faced when working for a large and complex institution. Note also that Ms.Keith threatened to report the attorney who initially complained about her actions to the Florida Bar for discipline. We will need to keep a watch on this case to see if any bar investigation or discipline results for any of the attorneys involved.
