Based on the latest neuroscience research, this entertaining, practical guide offers law students a formula for success in school, on the bar exam, and as practicing attorneys. The process of mastering the law, either as a law student or as an attorney, becomes much easier if one has a working knowledge of the brain's basic habits. The first part of the book translates the research, explaining learning strategies that work for the brain and why others are useless. The second part explores the brain's decision-making processes and cognitive biases. Readers will gain a fluency with the biases that affect persuasion -- the hallmark of a successful lawyer. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

How do lawyers resolve ethical dilemmas in the everyday context of their practice? What are the issues that commonly arise, and how do lawyers determine the best ways to resolve them? Until recently, efforts to answer these questions have focused primarily on rules and legal doctrine rather than the real-life situations lawyers face in legal practice. The first book to present empirical research on ethical decision making in a variety of practice contexts, including corporate litigation, securities, immigration, and divorce law, Lawyers in Practice fills a substantial gap in the existing literature. Following an introduction emphasizing the increasing importance of understanding context in the legal profession, contributions focus on ethical dilemmas ranging from relatively narrow ethical issues to broader problems of professionalism, including the prosecutor’s obligation to disclose evidence, the management of conflicts of interest, and loyalty to clients and the court. Each chapter details the resolution of a dilemma from the practitioner’s point of view that is, in turn, set within a particular community of practice. Timely and practical, this book should be required reading for law students as well as students and scholars of law and society.
