The Ethics Bureau at Yale (EBaY) advises lawyers on how to proceed when faced with violations of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and other ethical dilemmas. Students draft amicus briefs in cases involving professional responsibility; help people with ineffective assistance of counsel claims; and offer ethics advice to nonprofit organizations. A weekly class on professional responsibility is also part of the bureau. The Ethics Bureau is taught by Lawrence Fox, the George W. Crawford Visiting Lecturer in Law.
