Summary
"Many law professors aim to probe deep ethical issues in class. But they also need to cover the material that the multistate professional responsibility examination requires. The Rotunda Nutshell fulfils that need as it digests the Model rules...[This] book places the rules in an historic context that lets the student understand problems with prior versions of the Rules, which led to the present version. The Nutshell also analyzes the American Law Institute's Restatement of the law governing lawyers, third."--
