B508 is taught by Stafford

Many lawyers are unfortunately ill prepared for their management roles. This class will examine the decisions inherent in creating or managing a small firm from the perspective of an applied legal ethics course, looking at how the Model Rules of Professional Conduct get applied on the ground in managing a law firm consistent with the ethical expectations of our profession.
