The purpose of this article is to consider some correlations between the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct (the “Model Rules” or “Rules”) and Holy Scripture. Just as Christians are exhorted to pattern their conduct directly on Jesus’ life and teachings, and more generally on the moral guidance of the Old and New Testaments, so attorneys must conform their actions to rules of professional responsibility.
