Legal Ethics & Professional Conduct

Introduction

"Every lawyer is responsible for observance of the Rules of Professional Conduct. A lawyer should also aid in securing their observance by other lawyers. Neglect of these responsibilities compromises the independence of the profession and the public interest which it serves." ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, Preamble and Scope ¶ 12 (2016).

This guide highlights the resources available to Jenkins' members dealing with legal ethics and professional responsibility, including model rules, ethics opinions, and disciplinary procedure.
