In addition to the 12th edition, the authors now offer a Concise Version. Continuing the tradition that has made Morgan, Rotunda, and Dzienkowski's Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility a leader in its field, this concise version of the casebook uses problems to provide an overview of lawyers' professional responsibility. This condensed edition covers these topics in an abbreviated format. The concise coursebook is based on the 12th edition of Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility, which has been the most widely-used Professional Responsibility coursebook and the leader in its field since its first edition in 1976, over 35 years ago. It is designed for 2 hour classes and for seminars in legal ethics. As the law has evolved, so has the 12th edition. Yet, some schools and professors would like to offer a shorter course than the 12th edition anticipates. This abridged edition fits the bill. The authors have carefully designed it to be familiar to long time users, and accessible to new adopters. It focuses on the major issues of law governing the practice of law and the law of judicial disqualification, while shortening the volume of material and focusing on only the most essential topics. It continues its tradition of offering the most usable and up-to-date course materials to teach legal ethics and the law governing the practice of law. Students using this book will learn what they need to pass the state bar exam on Professional Responsibility yet also be introduced to the larger topics that the 12th edition covers more thoroughly. A comprehensive teacher's manual is available as well.

The Seventh Edition of this course book revises only slightly the organization familiar to its many users, but increases the attention paid to informal processes, current controversies, and the push for open government. Following an introduction to the history, institutional context, and theory of administrative law, students are exposed to four main topics: the political control of administration by Congress and the executive branch; agency processes for adjudication and rulemaking; government access to and required disclosure of information; and judicial remedies for official illegality. Doctrinal analysis is enriched by case studies of the law in action in particular contexts.
