While each state establishes the rules of legal ethics applicable to the practice of law in that jurisdiction, states generally start from the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct in formulating the rules for lawyers in that state. The common law and statutory law continue to play an important role in how lawyers should analyze challenges that arise in practice in fulfilling their professional duties.

Environmental practice can seem to involve an endless stream of ethical problems. These issues should always be taken seriously, but the need for cautious and thorough analysis of ethical questions is of paramount importance when issues of safety are implicated. Ethics and Environmental Practice deals with the critical questions that face the environmental lawyer, and considers the major issues relating to ethics challenges, including:

  • Developing an awareness of ethics issues
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Confidentiality
  • Special issues of competency
  • Multijurisdictional and multidisciplinary practice
  • Interaction with criminal law regimes
  • Tort law
  • Litigation trends in lawyer liability
  • Human rights and the environment
  • Comparative environmental systems in the U.S. and other countries
  • Emergency response
  • Working with consultants and the media, and more
