The Breath Of The Unfee'd Lawyer: Statutory Fee Limitations And Ineffective Assistance Of Counsel In Capital Litigation, Albert L. Vreeland Ii Dec 1991

The Breath Of The Unfee'd Lawyer: Statutory Fee Limitations And Ineffective Assistance Of Counsel In Capital Litigation, Albert L. Vreeland Ii

Michigan Law Review

This Note argues that fee limitations deprive indigent defendants of their right to effective assistance of counsel. Part I of this Note reviews state court decisions that address Sixth Amendment challenges to fee limitations, yet fail to address the broader concerns about the appointed counsel system. Part II considers the inherent disincentives and burdens fee limitations impose on attorneys and suggests that the limits threaten the indigent accused's right to effective assistance of counsel. A comparison of the fee limitations and the time required to prepare and try a capital case reveals the gross inadequacy of statutory fee provisions ...


Do Pigs Need Wings? Introductory Thoughts On Law Reviews, Errors, And The Coase Theorem, Stephen Calkins Oct 1991

Do Pigs Need Wings? Introductory Thoughts On Law Reviews, Errors, And The Coase Theorem, Stephen Calkins

Law Faculty Research Publications

Ever since shepherd children stumbled upon the Dead Sea Scrolls, a small group of scholars controlled access to these writings.

In late 1991 the Biblical Archaeology Society published a "facsimile edition" of the previously unpublished scrolls. Professor Robert H. Eisenman, coeditor of the new edition, boasted that this was "'the last stage in breaking the monopoly' of authorized editors over the scroll ...


Defense Counsel As Prosecution Witness: A Combined Doctrine To Govern Attorney Disclosure, David B. Merchant Oct 1991

Defense Counsel As Prosecution Witness: A Combined Doctrine To Govern Attorney Disclosure, David B. Merchant

Washington Law Review

Prosecutors have increasingly used grand juries to compel defense attorneys to disclose client administrative data such as clients' names, fee amounts, or third-party fee payments. A majority of the federal circuit courts protect administrative information only if disclosure would reveal the substance of previous attorney-client conversations. In contrast, a minority of the circuits protect such information when disclosure would incriminate a client in the case at bar.

Instead, a doctrine that combines the majority and minority views would more effectively promote the policies underlying ...
