GOV-102: Basics of Legal Ethics

2 credits

This course has been evaluated and recommended for 2 credits by the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS), and may be transferred to over 1,500 colleges and universities.



Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on the basics of legal ethics. This course looks at the responsibilities of legal professionals (mainly lawyers) to defend their clients and to preserve the integrity of the justice system. While the course is mainly based on rules applicable to attorneys, non-attorney legal professionals who work with attorneys are also indirectly bound by them, as non-attorney misfeasance can bring severe consequences for supervising attorneys and organizations.

This is a beginner-level course and no prior knowledge of law or legal ethics is required.
