From Harvard Law School:
In this article, we look at what U.S. law schools are doing to prepare the next generation of lawyers for the ethical and professional landscapes that await them beyond graduation. First, we explore the more overt ways in which the ABA Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools (henceforth, “Standards”) influence law school curricula with respect to the former’s professional responsibility requirement. Second, we look at how legal education is innovating around ethics and professional responsibility, taking examples from a few U.S. law schools as well as looking at broader trends across legal academia. In the end we are left with a broad picture of how ethics and professional conduct factor into legal training in the United States today.
