From The Closet To The House-Tops: The Law And Ethics Of Media "Outing", Allison Bailey

Student Thesis Honors (1996-2008)

This paper examines the law and ethics of media outing. First, it explains the history of outing and the arguments for and against it. Next, it evaluates the potential causes of action for an outing victim and proposed changes in the law. Third, this paper explores the possibility that the best response to outing may be a non-legal one: better ethics in journalism.

A Bludgeon By Any Other Name: The Misuse Of Ethical Rules Against Prosecutors To Control The Law Of The State, Frank O. Bowman Iii

Faculty Publications

My objective here is threefold: (1) to explain these ethical rules and demonstrate how each is in conflict with longstanding principles of federal criminal law; (2) to explain why these rules are illegitimate, both as rules of ethics and as rules of positive law; and (3) to offer some observations on how the dispute over these rules can sharpen our thinking about the nature and proper limits of ethical rules governing lawyers.

Report Of The Working Group On Determining The Child's Capacity To Make Decisions, Peter Margulies

Fordham Law Review

[Preamble] As with adults, a lawyer has an ethical obligation to advocate the position of a child unless independent evidence exists that the child is unable to express a reasoned choice about issues that are relevant to the particular purpose for which the lawyer is representing the child. Where such evidence exists, the lawyer must engage in additional fact-finding to determine whether the child has, or may develop, the capacity to direct the lawyer's action in the particular context.
