Ethics and Professional Practice for Paralegals, 5th Edition guides readers through principles of professional conduct, legal obligations, and ethical issues.

Providing students with the practical knowledge necessary for their future careers, this text presents the Paralegal Rules of Conduct and the Paralegal Professional Conduct Guidelines along with various key topics, including the paralegal–client relationship, the purpose of retainers, the Paralegal Standing Committee, accreditation requirements, and the controversy around advertising practices.

Readers will be given the opportunity to exercise their understanding about professional issues and ethical practice in every chapter; through new Planning for Practice fact situations, readers will closely follow Rajni Peacock’s journey from paralegal licensing to her decision to start her own firm.
