Details and specs:

An accessible and invaluable resource for students and practitioners alike, this work explores the complex issues of professional responsibility commonly faced by lawyers in contemporary practice. Drawing on his broad and varied experience in litigation, advocacy and professional discipline practice, Gavin MacKenzie elucidates the meaning of professionalism and the everyday application of the rules of professional conduct. Recent decisions from the Supreme Court of Canada and other appellate courts, as well as policy changes made by professional regulatory bodies, have led to important developments in several areas which are addressed in the Fifth Edition. Canvassed in detail are such matters as the adversary system, the lawyer's role as advocate, the duty of confidentiality, conflicts of interest, access to justice and the regulation of the profession. Also examined are the unique challenges faced by corporate and government counsel, and the ethical issues arising in such particular areas of practice as tax, mediation, estates, real estate and criminal law. New with this edition: A CD-ROM of 10 scenarios to encourage discussion and analysis of ethical issues that may arise in practice.
