It continues to include 'Practice Questions and Response' boxes and 'Legal and Ethical Myths and Realities' boxes, which clarify contested or confusing issues in practice. This third edition more explicitly addresses the interaction between law and ethics in practice, and incorporates more material on professional ethics in all chapters.
