For ethics courses taught in Legal Studies, Paralegal Studies, and Legal Assistant programs.

Ethics for the Legal Professional, 8e by Deborah Orlik sets the standard for professional responsibility textbooks. Written for the paralegal, its upbeat tone encourages students to stay engaged in the reading.  Margin “Challenge Assignments” invite students to research and apply their own state laws to common ethical problems. Video cases are available online and offer a contemporary approach to class discussion. Additional cases and vignettes fill each chapter and help students apply concepts to real situations. This edition includes more on online self-testing and research assignments, while referencing the latest case law for each of the 50 states. With its lively narrative and state-specific approach, this book tackles important ethical issues and builds marketable research and critical-thinking skills.
