These guidelines, prepared by the FBA Ethics Committee, are based upon the ABA's model rules, but specifically address dilemmas and responsibilities encountered by federal attorneys and attornets practicing in front of a federal agency. Rules cover subjects ranging from the client-attorney relationship and the roles of counselor and advocate, to transactions with non-clients, public service, and maintaining the integrity of the profession. Additional comment sections provide interpretive guidance. Several federal agencies have adopted these rules to govern the conduct of their attorneys. 48 pages.
