Assignment: Legal Ethics
Assignment: Legal Ethics Discussion
Find an article related to legal ethics. For example, it should be about a lawyer who has violated the ethics rules by taking advantage of a client or not following through on a representation. Just because something is not ethical does not mean it is relevant. To begin this assignment, please access the APUS Online Library and select and article. The article selected should be no more than four years old. (ATTACHED ARE 3 ARTICLES…….CHOOSE 1) (ONLY CHOOSE 1 OF THE ATTACHED ARTICLES TO DISCUSS)
Summarize the article in your own words. You should highlight the main points and indicate the specific rule that was violated.
Discuss whether you agree or not with the article, and why.
Discuss whether you agree with the discipline taken against the attorney. If no discipline was taken against the attorney or not stated in the article explain what discipline you think would be appropriate and why.
Your article review should be 1-2 pages in length.
Make sure all citations and references are in APA. .
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
