It begins with concrete concepts that have been given some clear direction in the courts and state legislatures (UPL confidentiality and conflicts) before moving on to the more technical, rule-driven concepts (advertising, billing and fees), and then to the most abstract rules (competence, zealous representation and integrity).

Ethics for the Legal Professional sets the standard for professional responsibility books. Now in its sixth edition, the book has been reorganized to reflect the changes in the paralegal profession. It begins with concrete concepts that have been given some clear direction in the courts and state legislatures (UPL confidentiality and conflicts) before moving on to the more technical, rule-driven concepts (advertising, billing and fees), and then to the most abstract rules (competence, zealous representation and integrity). Written from the viewpoint of the paralegal, this book uses plain English and an upbeat tone to keep readers engaged. Still the most popular book in its genre, the 6th Edition continues to tackle the most important ethical issues facing paralegals today in a frank, conversational style. Written from the viewpoint of the paralegal not a lawyer. Avoids legalese and jargon so the material is easier to understand.

Great basic book if you are interested in ethics. Great quality for the price of the book.

Good reading.

I am a Paralegal Studies student & this book is a requirement. However, even if I weren't a student I would recommend the book. It's a very easy read & you don't have to be studying law on any level. It's an eye opener to what is & is not ethical in the legal system & why. I find it very interesting!

Class hasn't started yet & I am already enjoying this book immensely!

THe book came in on time it was a used book and said it was in good condition. The cover was not a heard back so it had been bent up a little, but there was no other damage to the book, it was in great condition, no other writing in the book. Thanks Amazon!

Ethics for the Legal Professional by Deborah K. Orlik barely earns three stars. It aims to cover basics of topics like unauthorized practice of law, confidentiality, and conflict of interest in what it describes as "plain English and an upbeat tone to keep readers engaged." Commendable as this is, the author strays from plain English and an upbeat tone into an annoying, breezy style that seems like more of a disjointed, unrehearsed presentation than a book that has gone through six editions over two decades. For example, in discussing the improper division of fees as an aspect of unauthorized practice of law, the author begins a paragraph with, "Repeat after me: Fee splitting is evil and I'll never do it." While some may appreciate such an attempt at humor, in a textbook it comes off as unprofessional. Additionally, chapters are not well organized and seem to jump from topic to topic without clear connections.

On the positive side, the text does contain numerous review questions and discussion materials, along with relevant case law which clarifies some of the issues. But that barely compensates for the drawbacks. Hopefully the seventh edition will rectify the situation.

Covers the basics of the title. Gives you an inkling of what you might be able to get away with. Readable.

it arrived on the first date within the time frame for arrival. It arrived in the description it was described as.
I got my book very quickly by using expedited service. I'm glad I chose this vendor because my book came very quickly and in excellent condition. I had initially ordered it through Amazon but for some reason I don't think they had it in stock because I had been waiting for over two weeks and they still showed that the item wouldn't ship out for two more weeks. Well class was starting and I couldn't wait. I would definitely recommend this vendor.
