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 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.
