This publication, edited by the New York County Lawyers' Association, includes the complete New York Rules of Professional Conduct, selected state and federal statutes and court rules, a comprehensive index, and a Code-to-Rules correlation table comparing the provisions of the new Rules to their comparable provisions in the prior Code. The New York Rules of Professional Conductprovides in-depth analysis of each ethics rule for real practice as well as a best practices section on how to protect your law license, practice tips, warning and alerts, and other helpful articles.
