Rules of Professional Conduct
The Model Rules of Professional Conduct of the American Bar Association set standards for such matters as client-lawyer relationships, fees, conflict of interest, role of lawyer as counselor and advocate, transactions with persons other than clients, responsibilities of law firms and associations, public service, and dissemination of information about legal services (including advertising). Such Rules replaced the former ABA Code of Professional Responsibility
