Legal Malpractice Law is a practical, problem-oriented text designed for use in elective courses on Legal Malpractice, Professional Liability, Advanced Legal Ethics, or Advanced Torts, or in required Professional Responsibility classes that want to focus more on malpractice than on discipline. Each chapter includes explanatory text that relies on recent cases, code provisions, statutes, and commentary. A small number of tightly edited principal cases offer insight into the current state of legal malpractice law. The problems, including many that are based on actual controversies, deal with liability concerns that practitioners encounter. The book covers claims brought by clients and non-clients. It also integrates malpractice prevention lessons. Relevant ethics rules are discussed. A comprehensive teacher’s manual analyzes each of the book's fifty-one discussion problems in a clear question-and-answer format designed to simplify class preparation. The teacher's manual includes sample syllabii for using the textbook in a Legal Malpractice or Professional Responsibility course.
