Ethics in Legal Writing 2022

Available: In Stock
Price: $49.00
Item Code: 11700-BK


Legal writing does not immediately pop into mind when lawyers think of ethics requirements. However, much of legal work is done through the written word. Just as lawyers often violate ethics rules when communicating with clients, judges, and other lawyers, they also cross the line in their writing. These course materials look at the ethical pitfalls of legal writing and offer practical tips to navigate the risks.
