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 duty 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 includes substantial instruction on the rules of professional conduct and provides essential preparation for the practice of law. At the discretion of the Associate Dean, this course may be offered for either two or three credits.

Students may not take both Legal Profession and Legal Profession Seminar.
