In addition to the 12th edition, the authors now offer a Concise Version. Continuing the tradition that has made Morgan, Rotunda, and Dzienkowski's Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility a leader in its field, this concise version of the casebook uses problems to provide an overview of lawyers' professional responsibility. This condensed edition covers these topics in an abbreviated format. The concise coursebook is based on the 12th edition of Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility, which has been the most widely-used Professional Responsibility coursebook and the leader in its field since its first edition in 1976, over 35 years ago. It is designed for 2 hour classes and for seminars in legal ethics. As the law has evolved, so has the 12th edition. Yet, some schools and professors would like to offer a shorter course than the 12th edition anticipates. This abridged edition fits the bill. The authors have carefully designed it to be familiar to long time users, and accessible to new adopters. It focuses on the major issues of law governing the practice of law and the law of judicial disqualification, while shortening the volume of material and focusing on only the most essential topics. It continues its tradition of offering the most usable and up-to-date course materials to teach legal ethics and the law governing the practice of law. Students using this book will learn what they need to pass the state bar exam on Professional Responsibility yet also be introduced to the larger topics that the 12th edition covers more thoroughly. A comprehensive teacher's manual is available as well.

This pioneering book offers the most comprehensive and teachable compilation of materials on public health law now available. One of the challenges of teaching public health law is that the subject matter is not self-contained and touches every other body of law. This book solves that problem by organizing and integrating the material to address (1) cross-cutting themes in public health policy and (2) the policy tools used by public health policymakers and practitioners. In perhaps its most exciting innovation, Bonnie and Bernheim have constructed an intriguing and diverse menu of teachable units focused on specific policy problems or case studies in public health action. Each case study weaves together the perspectives of law, ethics and public policy. This book is richly interdisciplinary. Although the basic anatomy of the book is organized around the law, the materials feature the empirical perspectives of the public health sciences and draw on cross-cutting themes and normative frameworks of applied ethics and public policy. Although designed for students of law, the book can easily be adapted to courses designed for students in public health and public policy programs and other professional courses examining the role of law and public policy in advancing population health.
