From the LexisNexis website:

This text is a comprehensive discussion of the professional responsibilities of lawyers in Canada. The book addresses issues related to the “law of ethics and lawyering” and provides tools for assisting students and practitioners in exercising the moral judgment which underlies all ethical decisions by lawyers. Case law and case studies are used to illustrate points and suggest solutions to problems that lawyers typically face during their day-to-day practice.

This new edition includes discussion on new cases and issues raised in recent Supreme Court of Canada and other Canadian court decisions, as well as expanded discussion on ethics pertaining to government lawyers and lawyers in corporate settings, as well as a brand new chapter on “Judge’s Ethics/Lawyer’s Dilemmas”.
