Suing The Firm, Richard C. Reuben

Faculty Publications

Lawyers who once would rather take grievances against their firms to the grave are now taking them to court. Is it the death of professionalism or the dawning of accountability?


Am I My Partner's Keeper? Peer Review In Law Firms, Susan Saab Fortney Dec 1995

Am I My Partner's Keeper? Peer Review In Law Firms, Susan Saab Fortney

Faculty Scholarship

This article explores the concept of peer review in the practice of law. The article begins with an introduction to law partners’ liability exposure for the acts or omissions of their law partners. The article explains how this exposure has traditionally been approached as vicarious liability and how the government is attempting to transform these issues into direct liability by using failure to monitor claims. Part I briefly reviews perspectives on the emergence, growth, and structure of law firms, then uses a matrix to show how firm culture and organizational structure affect internal and external controls on attorney conduct. Part …


Sneaking Around In The Legal Profession: Interjurisdictional Unauthorized Practice By Transactional Lawyers, Charles W. Wolfram Nov 1995

Sneaking Around In The Legal Profession: Interjurisdictional Unauthorized Practice By Transactional Lawyers, Charles W. Wolfram

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

The quiet clubbiness that once characterized the practice of law in the United States is rapidly disappearing as new realities announce their clamorous arrival. Evaporating at a great rate—judging speed of change in historical terms—are many traditionally accepted and functionally important features of the legal profession of another day. Disappearing or dead are such sturdy former fixtures as the exclusivity of traditional bar self-policing. Also gone is the at-one-time widely acknowledged hegemony of the American Bar Association as the exclusive source of lawyer code pronouncements on lawyer disciplinary regulation. Courts, under the thrall of bar associations, at one time claimed …

A Lot Of Knowledge Is A Dangerous Thing: Will The Legal Profession Survive The Knowledge Explosion?, H W. Arthurs Oct 1995

A Lot Of Knowledge Is A Dangerous Thing: Will The Legal Profession Survive The Knowledge Explosion?, H W. Arthurs

Dalhousie Law Journal

Professor Arthurs argues that with the growth and diversification of knowledge, the common body of knowledge that underpins a unified profession is becoming more difficult to sustain. The desire to know, the need to know and the resources to know have divided lawyers into subprofessions, increasingly defined by the non-lawyers with whom they work and the clienteles they serve, bound togetherif at all-only by nostalgia and some residuum of self-interest.

The Impact Of The Americans With Disabilities Act On State Bar Examiner's Inquiries Into The Psychological History Of Bar Applicants, Carol J. Banta Oct 1995

The Impact Of The Americans With Disabilities Act On State Bar Examiner's Inquiries Into The Psychological History Of Bar Applicants, Carol J. Banta

Michigan Law Review

This Note argues that the use of any questions based upon an applicant's psychological history in the state bar application process violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. Part I demonstrates that Title II of the ADA applies to state boards of bar examiners, and that the ADA definition of a person with a disability includes a person who has sought or received psychological counseling. Part II applies the ADA and accompanying regulations to the psychological history inquiries currently used by state bar examiners and argues that such inquiries violate the ADA because they inquire specifically about disabled status. Part III …


Review Of "Constitutional Torts" By Sheldon H. Nahmod, Michael L. Wells, Thomas A. Eaton, Jack M. Beermann Sep 1995

Review Of "Constitutional Torts" By Sheldon H. Nahmod, Michael L. Wells, Thomas A. Eaton, Jack M. Beermann

Faculty Scholarship

The most interesting issues in the field of constitutional torts, involving the legal and moral bases for the government's responsibility for injuries it causes, are the most difficult ones for lawyers to explore. The question whether, as a moral or social policy matter, governments and government officials should enjoy immunities or other defenses not available to private individuals is rarely confronted directly in judicial opinions or in scholarship on constitutional torts, yet it lurks behind many of the doctrinal issues that come up in constitutional tort litigation.1 A slight scratch on the surface of doctrines as disparate as official …
