Abstract

The Author suggests that the First-year legal research and writing classes provide the logical forum to remind students of the importance of honesty and integrity both to their work and to the profession and to society as a whole. The Author believes that teachers would do well to take advantage of this unique opportunity to provide such lessons early and often and more importantly, as part of the regular legal research and writing curriculum.

Keywords: professional responsibility, honor codes, Model Rules of Professional Conduct, ethics and professional responsibility, legal writing and research
