More about Traversing the Ethical Minefield: Problems, Law, and Professional Responsibility, Fifth Edition, this casebook offers students accessible, teachable, and insightful primary material, problems, and notes that clarify and encourage analysis of the law governing lawyers. The book’s innovative pedagogy uses a combination of problems faced by fictitious law firm “Martyn and Fox,” cases, ethics opinions, notes, and tables to support its focus on teaching the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and the Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers and invite consideration of lawyer ethical dilemmas. The book’s manageable length makes it short enough to provide focus, but long enough to convey the rich texture of the subject.

Bundle also includes PracticePerfect: Professional Responsibility, a visually engaging, interactive study aid designed to help students review core course topics and test their ability to recall and correctly apply the law. PracticePerfect contains a library of animated videos that explain course topics through hypothetical situations, quizzes to test knowledge and understanding, and progress trackers so students can identify their strengths and weaknesses in the course. Designed to work with all major casebooks, PracticePerfect is the ideal study companion for today's law students.
