Constitutionalizing Ethics, Bennett L. Gershman 2017 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Constitutionalizing Ethics, Bennett L. Gershman

Pace Law Review

The purpose of this essay is not to weigh in the wisdom or utility in revising New York’s Constitution. However, in my opinion, one of the most compelling reasons to amend New York’s Constitution is the need to incorporate into the fundamental charter a meaningful code of ethics, including procedures for its enforcement, and sanctions for violations. New York over the past fifteen years has experienced more scandals, criminal prosecutions, and convictions of lawmakers and other government officials for corruption than any state in the nation. It is certainly arguable that the extent of New York’s corruption ...

The Ethics Of Metadata: A Critical Analysis And A Practical Solution, Hans P. Sinha 2017 University of Maine School of Law

The Ethics Of Metadata: A Critical Analysis And A Practical Solution, Hans P. Sinha

Maine Law Review

The ease with which documents can be transmitted over the internet via e-mail has led to the exchange of legal documents between attorneys in electronic format (generally as attachments to an e-mail) on a daily basis. While some exchanges of electronic documents occur in a formal discovery context, governed by formal rules of discovery or court-orders, the vast majority of electronic documents exchanged between attorneys occurs in the non-formal discovery context: two or more attorneys simply exchanging contract drafts, memoranda, letters—documents pertaining in one way or another to the representation of their clients—between and amongst each other. This ...

Surrogate Lawyering: Legal Guidance, Sans Lawyers, Paul R Tremblay 2017 Boston College Law School

Surrogate Lawyering: Legal Guidance, Sans Lawyers, Paul R Tremblay

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Innovative thinkers within the access-to-justice (ATJ) movement have been experimenting with creative ideas for delivering meaningful legal guidance in an efficient way to clients struggling with civil legal needs. These efforts respond to the long-standing crisis in the delivery of legal services to disadvantaged persons, and the overwhelming need for legal advice in areas such as debt collection, housing, family, and immigration. One such imaginative proposal is what this Article calls “surrogate lawyering.” This innovation envisions public interest law firms using some scarce lawyer time to train and advise community-based organization (CBO) staff members to respond, in real time and ...


Leveraging Academic Law Libraries To Expand Access To Justice, Paul Jerome McLaughlin Jr. 2017 Florida A&M University College of Law

Leveraging Academic Law Libraries To Expand Access To Justice, Paul Jerome Mclaughlin Jr.

Library Faculty Publications

Academic law libraries are in a unique position to help citizens gain access to the court system and legal information. By creating clinics that focus on helping pro se patrons find and complete legal forms, academic law libraries would not only benefit their schools but also the justice system.

Rock, Paper, Scissors... Loot!, Michael Mogill 2017 Penn State Dickinson Law

Rock, Paper, Scissors... Loot!, Michael Mogill

Nevada Law Journal Forum

As teachers, we always try to inspire our students. That inspiration can be kindled in many forums, whether in the classroom, our offices, our communities—or, more rarely, in front of an entire graduating class. This article reflects the remarks I delivered to my students, our graduating class, on such a rare occasion, now several years past. The genesis of my speech, a simple child’s game (one we all know), led me through the reflections I offered to the class of 2014 and now offer to a much larger audience. I began writing these remarks with a question in ...

Chief Justice William Howard Taft's Conception Of Judicial Integrity: The Legal History Of Tumey V. Ohio, Joshua E. Kastenberg 2017 University of New Mexico

Chief Justice William Howard Taft's Conception Of Judicial Integrity: The Legal History Of Tumey V. Ohio, Joshua E. Kastenberg

Joshua E. Kastenberg

In 1927, Chief Justice William Howard Taft led a unanimous Court to determine that, at minimum, the right to an impartial and independent judiciary meant that the judge had to lack a personal interest in the outcome of the trial. While the decision, Tumey v. Ohio, was based on a judge’s pecuniary interest, it was also part of Taft’s efforts to ensure that the nation’s judges, from the municipal courts to the Supreme Court had the public’s confidence in their integrity. Tumey, therefore, is not simply a decision on pecuniary interests. It can, and should, be ...


"Whistle . . . And You've Got An Audience", Amanda C. Leiter 2017 Selected Works

"Whistle . . . And You've Got An Audience", Amanda C. Leiter

Amanda Leiter

One of the questions for discussion today is whether public rights litigation is an effective means of social change. This Article does not attempt an answer but begins to explore a set of issues central to any answer: the extent, types, uses, and potential shortcomings of government whistleblowing. There is considerable sociological and legal literature on government whistleblowing, but little of it addresses the issue from the angle relevant to maximizing the efficacy of public rights litigation. This Article begins to fill that gap. Part I discusses the importance of whistleblowers in the vindication and enforcement of public rights. Part ...
