A survey of legal and ethical doctrine bearing on lawyers in business practice. Topics include disclosure and confidentiality, secondary liability for client wrongdoing, conflicts of interest, and regulatory constraints on the organization and marketing of legal services. We will be especially concerned with the application of client loyalty principles to organizational clients in situations where organizational constituencies are in conflict. We will also consider issues distinctive to tax and securities practice and will consider the role of lawyers in some recent business scandals.
