Prof. Noonberg’s offering covers the same material as is covered in the Legal Profession course, but does so in a seminar format. This seminar satisfies the requirement that students take and pass Legal Profession. Writing done for this seminar may be used to satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement.
Mr. Noonberg serves as national co-chair of DLAPiperRudnick's Professional Responsibility Function. In his seminar course emphasis will be placed on the professional responsibility issues facing law firms and the ethical responsibilities of the practicing lawyer.Prof. Krantz’ offering satisfies the requirement that students take and pass Legal Profession. Legal Profession examines the activities and responsibilities of the lawyer and the lawyer’s relationship with clients, the legal profession, the courts, and the public. The course treats the lawyer’s fiduciary duties to clients, the provision of adequate legal services, and the reconciliation of the lawyer’s obligation to clients, in and out of court, with the demands of the proper administration of justice and the public interest. The course, therefore, provides essential preparation for the practice of law.
Students in this course also may earn an additional 2-3 credits by working 10 hours or more per week with experienced lawyers to strengthen and help to enforce standards of conduct that govern lawyers, including formal ethics rules and laws that regulate lawyers. Enforcement processes may include bar proceedings (disciplinary and opinion functions), civil litigation, post-conviction proceedings and criminal prosecutions. (See Legal Profession Practicum)
