Using the drowning child as an analogy, this Article argues that lawyers are morally obligated to (1)increase the amount of their pro bono efforts, (2) be more selective in the cases they take, and (3) be significantly more generous in their financial support for legal services providers. These obligations are …

Faculty Scholarship

In an Arkansas capital murder prosecution that resulted in conviction and sentences of death based on the killing of a family offour, defense counsel learned after the conviction had been reversed that a key prosecution witness, the defendant's son, who testified against his father, implicating him in the murders at trial, had also given prosecutors a statement in which he claimed responsibility for the crimes and exculpated his father.

Friending And Following: Applying The Rules Of Professional Conduct To Social Media, Andy Taylor Apr 2012

Friending And Following: Applying The Rules Of Professional Conduct To Social Media, Andy Taylor

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review
