An Overview of Professional Responsibility
Professional responsibility refers to the duties and obligations that lawyers have to their clients, other lawyers, the legal system, and society as a whole. The American Bar Association (ABA) promulgates the Model Rules of Professional Conduct (MRPC), which are intended to be a model for state organizations tasked with regulating the legal profession. The MRPC is not binding law itself, but every state has adopted rules based in some part on the MRPC.
The ABA requires that all law schools teach “one course of at least two credit hours in professional responsibility that includes substantial instruction in the history, goals, structure, values, and responsibilities of the legal profession and its members.” Additionally, every state besides Wisconsin requires bar applicants to pass an exam called the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE). (Wisconsin tests applicants on local ethics rules.)
