New Edition Book of ABA's Model Rules Is Announced

In an email sent around today, the American Bar Association announced its publication of the 2008 2150023_big Edition of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, with the MR Comments included, for $19.95 (or $14.95 for section members, and also discounted for student members). 

It is the "centennial edition" because: "On August 27, 1908, at a meeting in Seattle, Washington, the American Bar Association adopted the Canons of Professional Ethics, the first set of model standards of ethical conduct for lawyers nationwide." 

I am assigning this one for my "The Legal Profession" ethics class in the fall (with a full casebook too, of course, that also discusses many of the pre-2002 MR and also the Model Code), because it is quite cheap for the students and has most of what I intend to use from a rules supplement anyway.
