Professional Responsibility (Robert F. Muth)
LWAA580

3 credit(s), Standard Letter Graded

This course examines the singular ethics of lawyering and the rules of professional conduct applicable to the legal profession. We will focus on the Model Rules of Professional Conduct of the American Bar Association and an examination of the rules in California. We will examine the various professional relationships that exist between lawyers and: 1) their clients; 2) their colleagues; 3) the public; and 4) the judiciary, with a view toward answering such questions as: What are the "core values" of the legal profession? Why are lawyers required to act in ways that the public finds either confusing or hostile to other societal values? The objective of the course is to give students a working knowledge of the law governing lawyers, and an appreciation for the ethical challenges lawyers face and the ethical environment in which lawyers work. Grade determined by midterm, final and class participation.

Tax I (Paul L. Caron)
LWAA590

3 credit(s), Standard Letter Graded
Concentration(s): Taxation (MSLS), Taxation (LLMC)

There will be a final examination at the end of the course. Students are required to use an I-clicker and register it prior to the second class, and to bring the i-clicker to each class.
