Legal Services Regulation In Canada: Plus Ça Change?, Noel Semple 2017 University of Windsor, Faculty of Law

Legal Services Regulation In Canada: Plus Ça Change?, Noel Semple

Law Publications

In common law Northern Europe and in Australasia, a wave of reform has been transforming legal services regulation since roughly 1980. Old structures and approaches, based on the principles of professionalism and lawyer independence, are being replaced in these jurisdictions by new ones that prioritize competition and consumer interests. In the United States this has conspicuously not happened, leaving intact a regulatory approach whose broad outlines have changed little in the past 100 years.

Thus, I have argued that the legal services regulatory regimes of the common law world today are bifurcated into (i) a competitive-consumerist paradigm apparent in the ...

Male, Pale, And Stale? Diversity In Lawyers' Regulatory Leadership, Noel Semple 2017 University of Windsor, Faculty of Law

Male, Pale, And Stale? Diversity In Lawyers' Regulatory Leadership, Noel Semple

Law Publications

When lawyers elect the leaders of their self-regulatory organizations, what sort of people do they vote for? How do the selection processes for elite lawyer sub-groups affect the diversity and efficacy of those groups? This article quantitatively assesses the demographic and professional diversity of leadership in the Law Society of Upper Canada.

After many years of underrepresentation, in 2015 visible minority members and women were elected in numbers proportionate to their shares of Ontario lawyers. Regression analysis suggests that being non-white was not a disadvantage in the 2015 election, and being female actually conferred an advantage in attracting lawyers’ votes ...

The presenting question for the 2012 Symposium was how can engaged scholarship enhance teaching to prepare students for the legal profession and help to solve the critical problems of the day.12 The event employed a format designed to discover new ways of thinking about engaged scholarship. Each participant was asked to draft and submit in advance brief reflections on this question. At the Symposium, each professor attended seven breakout sessions held throughout the day. At each of these sessions, one participant presented to a small group of professors for ten minutes on her reflections, pinpointing issues, challenges, and themes ...

Compliance; Technology; And Modern Finance, Tom C.W. Lin 2016 Brooklyn Law School

Compliance; Technology; And Modern Finance, Tom C.W. Lin

Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial & Commercial Law

An important transformation is happening in the financial industry. The rise of new technology and compliance has dramatically altered many of the key functions and functionaries of modern finance. Artificial intelligence; algorithmic programs; and supercomputers; instead of human actors; now constitute the core of many financial operations. Compliance officers have become just as critical to financial institutions as traders; bankers; and analysts. Finance as we knew it has changed and continues to change. This symposium Article offers a studied commentary on these unfolding changes; the crosscutting developments in compliance; technology; and modern finance. It examines the concurrent and intersecting ascents ...


The Lawyer As Public Figure For First Amendment Purposes, Alex B. Long 2016 University of Tennessee College of Law

The Lawyer As Public Figure For First Amendment Purposes, Alex B. Long

Boston College Law Review

Should lawyers be treated as public figures for purposes of defamation claims and, therefore, be subjected to a higher evidentiary standard of actual malice under the Supreme Court’s decision in New York Times Co. v. Sullivan? The question of whether lawyers should be treated as public figures raises broad questions about the nature of defamation law and the legal profession. By examining the Supreme Court’s defamation jurisprudence through the lens of cases involving lawyers as plaintiffs, one can see the deficiencies and inconsistencies in the Court’s opinions more clearly. And by examining the Court’s defamation cases ...

Video: Happy Lawyers Make More Money: How To Achieve Financial Success, Fulfill Your Ethical Obligations, And Manage A Profitable Small Law Firm, How To Manage A Small Law Firm

Law Center Plus Seminar Series

How To MANAGE a Small Law Firm was founded by attorney RJon Robins. He quickly realized that despite having done quite well in law school, completing a prestigious 9 credit internship with the US Trustee’s Office and clerking for a Federal Bankruptcy Judge, he knew next to nothing about how to actually manage the business of a small law firm.

RJon did eventually discover how to manage a small law firm and was recruited by The Florida Bar’s Law Office Management Assistance Service (LOMAS) to teach his fellow lawyers how to find, fix and avoid the sort of ...
