We all can get off track, or need help staying on track. Sometimes we need a reminder about what some track signals mean or where a particular track might lead if we continue down it. Sometimes we need to know when to stop and jump off a runaway train...without hurting ourselves.

The Rules of Professional Conduct and associated discipline and other rules constitute the legal profession's "track system" or, if you prefer -- and to mix metaphors -- its compass. (Listen to "Following My Compass" performed by an Arizona folk music group here.) Either way, maybe this website will help you navigate.

Here you'll find information, news and analysis about ethical rules and the other rules lawyers live by. This site has an Arizona focus but also will take national and international perspectives, because lawyering these days crosses jurisdictional lines.
