Legal Status Of The Lawyer-Director: Avoiding Ethical Misconduct, Stephen M. Zaloom Apr 2000

Legal Status Of The Lawyer-Director: Avoiding Ethical Misconduct, Stephen M. Zaloom

University of Miami Business Law Review

There is a long-standing practice of attorneys accepting positions as corporate directors, roles that to a large degree are indicative of professional accomplishment. Accepting a position on a corporation's board of directors is enticing for lawyers since they may enjoy the opportunity to influence corporate decisions in the business arena. Additionally, lawyers are prime candidates for directorships because they are uniquely qualified to assess business issues from a legal standpoint. In fact, it is common practice both in the past and today for attorneys to assume the dual role of both attorney and director. Corporate clients continuously request that ...

Ethical Problems For Lawyers Upon Trust Terminations: Conflicts Of Interest, Joel C. Dobris Nov 1983

Ethical Problems For Lawyers Upon Trust Terminations: Conflicts Of Interest, Joel C. Dobris

University of Miami Law Review

Trust terminations pose ethical problems for lawyers. Beneficiaries often view the trustee's lawyer as "their" lawyer. The Code of Professional Responsibility and the recently adopted Model Rules of Professional Conduct provide little guidance in resolving the conflicts of interest that arise in trust terminations


How Far May A Lawyer Go In Assisting A Client In Legally Wrongful Conduct?, Geoffrey C. Hazard Jr. Jul 1981

How Far May A Lawyer Go In Assisting A Client In Legally Wrongful Conduct?, Geoffrey C. Hazard Jr.

University of Miami Law Review

Professor Hazard discusses the dimensions of the lawyer conduct prohibited by DR 7-102(A)(7) of the Model Code of Professional Responsibility, which provides that a lawyer shall not "[c]ounsel or assist his client in conduct that the lawyer knows to be illegal or fraudulent." After reviewing relevant principles of agency, tort, and criminal law, Professor Hazard concludes by asking whether it is this positive law outside of the Code that defines the scope of conduct prohibited by DR 7-102(A)(7), or whether the Code contains its own standard that, because of the nature of the lawyer-client relationship ...


The Function Of A Code Of Legal Ethics, L. Ray Patterson Jul 1981

The Function Of A Code Of Legal Ethics, L. Ray Patterson

University of Miami Law Review

The traditional view that the function of a code of legal ethics is to define the duties of lawyers and the rights of clients is based on the perception of the lawyer-client relationship as one of simple agency in which the lawyer has the utmost duty of loyalty to the client. The author suggests, however, that this perception is a fallacy that, by overlooking the fact that clients also have duties and lawyers also have rights, can result in antilegal rules of ethics. This result can be escaped, the author proposes, by integrating rules of ethics and rules of positive ...


A Mandatory Pro Bono Service Standard-Its Time Has Come, Chesterfield H. Smith Jul 1981

A Mandatory Pro Bono Service Standard-Its Time Has Come, Chesterfield H. Smith

University of Miami Law Review

Despite the efforts of ardent advocates such as Chesterfield Smith, former president of the American Bar Association, the legal profession has continually failed to adopt a rule requiring mandatory pro bono services. In this article, Mr. Smith proposes a definitive, yet flexible, pro bono rule to govern lawyers' conduct. The author explains that the flexible nature of such a rule will accommodate the individual circumstances of members of the bar while serving the needs of society.

Are The Model Rules Unconstitutional?, Monroe H. Freedman Jul 1981

Are The Model Rules Unconstitutional?, Monroe H. Freedman

University of Miami Law Review

In this article, Professor Freedman condemns the provisions of the proposed Model Rules of Professional Conduct that would require a lawyer to reveal his client's perjury to a court. Viewing these provisions as an assault on the lawyer-client privilege and the adversary system, which are protected by the fifth and sixth amendments to the United States Constitution, Professor Freedman offers the American Lawyer's Code of Conduct, for which he served as the Reporter, as an alternative. Professor Freedman views the American Lawyer's Code as the preferable alternative to the present ABA Model Code of Professional Responsibility because ...
