Note from your instructor: The Legal Ethics code is 93 pages long. You do NOT have to read the entire code. Read the “Preamble” and at least the EC #1 and #2. Skim the rest. Lawyers take an entire Law School course on this code, and are required then to take a four hour multiple-choice exam on it to get admitted to the Bar. I want you mainly to see how it differs from the Medical society code of ethics, and how detailed it is. We’ll talk about it more in the discussions.
