Eyes Wide Shut: How Ignorance Of The Common Interest Doctrine Can Compromise Informed Consent, Katharine Traylor Schaffzin Oct 2008

Eyes Wide Shut: How Ignorance Of The Common Interest Doctrine Can Compromise Informed Consent, Katharine Traylor Schaffzin

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

This Article addresses the novel ethical problems presented by the common interest doctrine that implicate an attorney's duties of diligence, confidentiality, and loyalty to his or her client. These adverse effects of informal aggregation are not always fully considered before engaging a client in a common interest arrangement, but they should be. In Part II, this Article first explains the potential advantages that the common interest doctrine presents as an evidentiary tool, but then recognizes that exercise of the doctrine creates an undefined duty on the part of the attorney to the party with whom a client exchanges confidential ...


Lawyer As Emotional Laborer, Sofia Yakren Oct 2008

Lawyer As Emotional Laborer, Sofia Yakren

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Prevailing norms of legal practice teach lawyers to detach their independent moral judgments from their professional performance-to advocate zealously for their clients while remaining morally unaccountable agents of those clients' causes. Although these norms have been subjected to prominent critiques by legal ethicists, this Article analyzes them instead through the lens of "emotional labor," a sociological theory positing that workers required to induce or suppress feeling in order to sustain the outward countenance mandated by organizational rules face substantial psychological risks. By subordinating their personal feelings and values to displays of zealous advocacy on behalf of others, lawyers, too, may ...

Licensing Lawyers In The Modern Economy, Trippe S. Fried Sep 2008

Licensing Lawyers In The Modern Economy, Trippe S. Fried

Campbell Law Review

This article explores a key question for the future of the legal profession: does a paradigm in which each individual state has exclusive control over the practice of law within its borders work in the marketplace of Friedman's "flat world"? Or in today's global economy does state micromanagement of the legal profession so inure to the detriment of lawyers and clients that some form of national licensing is necessary?

Drawing The Ethical Line: Controversial Cases, Zealous Advocacy, And The Public Good: Foreword, Lonnie T. Brown Jul 2008

Drawing The Ethical Line: Controversial Cases, Zealous Advocacy, And The Public Good: Foreword, Lonnie T. Brown

Scholarly Works

Are lawyers handling controversial matters justified in being myopically fixated upon achieving their client's or the state's objectives, whatever the costs? Or is there a point at which the interests of the system or perhaps even the public must take precedence, requiring that unbridled zeal and loyalty take a backseat? Such fascinating questions were skillfully examined during the 10th Annual Legal Ethics and Professionalism Symposium, "Drawing the Ethical Line: Controversial Cases, Zealous Advocacy, and the Public Good." The published remarks and the articles that follow provide a glimpse into the difficult ethical line-drawing that was engaged in by ...

Personal Management Skills: Getting The Most Out Of Every Day, Gary A. Munneke Jun 2008

Personal Management Skills: Getting The Most Out Of Every Day, Gary A. Munneke

Pace Law Faculty Publications

What are the personal management skills that lawyers need to possess (or develop, as the case may be), here is a short list: organization, time management, financial management, facility with technology, people skills, an ability to communicate, personal marketing skills and career skills. Although future columns will add flesh to the bones of these personal management skills, a skeletal overview may help to understand what this article is talking about.


To Mine Or Not To Mine: Recent Developments In The Legal Ethics Debate Regarding Metadata, Boris Reznikov May 2008

To Mine Or Not To Mine: Recent Developments In The Legal Ethics Debate Regarding Metadata, Boris Reznikov

Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts

The American Bar Association recently decided that attorneys are not violating the Model Rules of Professional Conduct by reviewing opposing parties’ electronic documents for metadata. The stance taken by the American Bar Association contradicts views from ethics committees in other jurisdictions that have determined that lawyers who examine metadata are acting unethically. This Article summarizes the American Bar Association’s decision, as well as the other opinions on metadata, to help practicing attorneys understand the proper ethical considerations they must make when determining whether to look into an electronic document’s metadata.
