Description

This easy-to-follow book offers a study of legal ethics and ethical dilemmas from the perspective of the paralegal. The book includes the ABA Model Rule that applies to attorneys so as to inform the paralegal how to act in accordance with these rules and better assist attorneys. The NALA and NFPA rules and guidelines focus on practical advice and information paralegals can use to comply with the pertinent rules of ethics. A discussion of business ethics prepares readers for the ethical situations they might encounter in working for a law firm, a major corporation, a government agency or other type of businesses.
