Texas Lawyers’ Professional Ethics
From the Texas Young Lawyers Association and TexasBarBooks!
This helpful 526-page desk reference brings together in one convenient volume materials concerning legal ethics applicable to law practice in Texas. Texas Lawyers’ Professional Ethics will be an invaluable addition to any legal library and an aid to any lawyer faced with ethical considerations in the day-to-day practice of law.
Purchase of the book includes a CD-ROM with the entire book as a fully word-searchable PDF. Internal cross-references, summaries of ethics opinions, comparison tables, tables of contents, and the index are all hyperlinked. The file also contains, in addition to links to Internet URLs and e-mail addresses, external links to Texas cases cited and the opinions of the Committee on Professional Ethics of the Supreme Court of Texas.
“Ethics and professional responsibility should be of paramount concern to all lawyers. Given the public’s skepticism of lawyers, the conduct of every attorney reflects on the profession. For this reason, this book is as timely today as it was when initially published in 1979 and revised in 1986 and 1997.”
