The Future Of Legal Education Reform, James E. Moliterno Oct 2013

The Future Of Legal Education Reform, James E. Moliterno

James E. Moliterno

As a historical matter, the legal profession obstinately resists change. Its ponderous, backward-looking and self-preservationist characteristics are embodied in the ABA's Ethics 20/20 Commission, which endeavors to protect, preserve, and maintain. But the profession suffers from such thinking. It must look forward; grow more attuned to outside events and trends; and become a player in how change is assimilated into established ways, and how established ways are replaced by more effective ones.

On The Future Of Integration Between Skills And Ethics Teaching: Clinical Legal Education In The Year 2010, James E. Moliterno Jan 2013

On The Future Of Integration Between Skills And Ethics Teaching: Clinical Legal Education In The Year 2010, James E. Moliterno

James E. Moliterno

Twelve years ago Anthony G. Amsterdam looked into the 21st century for a description of clinical legal education. With the decided advantage of being that much closer to the turn of the century, I think I will take a similar stab. This essay is less a contradiction of Amsterdam's predictions than it is a supplement with the advantages of the passage of time. I will adopt his 21st-century perspective and look at clinical legal education from the vantage point of the year 2010.

The Federal Government Lawyer's Duty To Breach Confidentiality, James E. Moliterno Jan 2013

The Federal Government Lawyer's Duty To Breach Confidentiality, James E. Moliterno

James E. Moliterno

The lawyer's duty of confidentiality springs from the lawyer-client relationship and its parameters are determined by the nature of that relationship. The federal government lawyer's client is like no other. The uniqueness of representing the United States calls for a unique approach to the duty of confidentiality. Unlike the private individual client, the government as a client does not speak with a single, unmistakable voice. Unlike the private entity client, the federal government has a paramount interest in the public good, including the public's right to know about government (the entity's conduct), especially its misconduct. The ...
