The second edition retains its focus on developing judgment. It provides more of the kind of advice senior lawyers give junior lawyers beginning their careers, but which many students in the modern ecomy, who must start their careers hopping from contract to contract, never receive. It also expands coverage of prosecutors' obligations and covers the expansion of Strickland doctrine to plea bargaining. 2012 revisions to the Model Rules are covered as well. Wonderful new cases illustrating extreme piecework demanded by lenders in the foreclosure crisis, deceptive cross-examination, and a defense attorney who turns witness against his client are added.
