Correction, Teacher’s Manual, Chapter 2 (revised)

1.  P. 21 of the Teacher’s Manual.  The correct answer to Question 10 should be B.  The analysis on that page is correct.  The change in correct answer has already been made in the on-line quizzes in the Faculty Program section of TWEN and accordingly TWEN will grade the quiz correctly.

2.  P. 22.  The the correct answer to Question 13 is B.  The analysis is correct.  The change in correct answers has already been made in the on-line quizzes in the Faculty Program section of TWEN and accordingly TWEN will grade the quiz correctly.

3.  PP. 28-29.  Question 1 is a more complicated situation.  The correct answer D accords with the Rules that the casebook provides the students.  Rule 1.16 (a) mandates withdrawal and Rule 1.6 prohibits disclosure of confidences.  The casebook, however, does not include Rule 1.3, Comment 5, which provides that:

To prevent neglect of client matters in the event of a sole practitioner’s death or disability, the duty of diligence may require that each sole practitioner prepare a plan, in conformity with applicable rules, that designates another competent lawyer to review client files, notify each client of the lawyer’s death or disability, and determine whether there is a need for immediate protective action.

This language suggests that C is the correct answer.  You now have a choice of how to deal with Question 1.  You can leave the question as is and introduce Rule 1.3, Comment 5 in class.  Or you can assign Rule 1.3, Comment 5 before the students take the quiz and in TWEN change the correct answer to C.
