PARA 4190 Legal Ethics in America

This course examines the professional and ethical dilemmas legal professionals may face. We will discuss and compare the ethical rules and professional standards developed by the American Bar Association, adopted by Louisiana and presented as guidelines by the two major paralegal associations. The course will compare reallife expectations and responses of legal professionals versus what is portrayed in the media. We will also discuss the impact of movies and television on public perception. The course objective is to develop informed, considered responses to ethical problems.
