Transnational Legal Practice [2016], Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

This Transnational Legal Practice (TLP) Year-in-Review article continues the tradition of collecting and publicizing the developments that occurred during the past year.  It focuses on developments that occurred during 2016.   
 
The 2014 TLP Year-in-Review provided a departure from the Year-in-Review’s typical method of presentation by identifying two categories of what that article called “TLP-Nets.”  See
Laurel S. Terry and Carole Silver, Transnational Legal Practice [2014], 49 ABA/SIL (n.s.) 413 (2015).   One group of TLP-Nets is nationally based and the other is inherently transnational.  
 
This article uses the TLP-Nets structure set forth in the 2014 TLP …


The Power Of Lawyer Regulators To Increase Client & Public Protection Through Adoption Of A Proactive Regulation System, Laurel S. Terry Dec 2015

The Power Of Lawyer Regulators To Increase Client & Public Protection Through Adoption Of A Proactive Regulation System, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

The idea behind this Article is Ben Franklin's statement that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." This Article builds on the author's prior articles that argue that one can think about lawyer regulation issues as involving who-what-when-where-why-and-how to regulate issues. This Article addresses the issue of "WHEN" regulation should occur. It argues that regulators should be trying to PREVENT problems, as well as responding AFTER problems occur.

This Article is primarily directed toward those who regulate U.S. lawyers. The Article argues that the lawyers who head regulatory bodies in the United States have the ability to …

Transnational Legal Practice 2015, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

This 2015 Year-in-Review article continues the tradition of collecting and publicizing the developments that occurred during the year related to transnational legal practice (TLP).   This year’s article builds on the work set forth in the 2014 Year-in-Review. 
 
The 2014 TLP Year-in-Review provided a departure from the Year-in-Review’s typical method of presentation by identifying two categories of what that article called “TLP-Nets.”  One group of TLP-Nets is nationally based and the other is inherently transnational. The 2014 article identified examples of TLP-Nets and highlighted the meeting points and relationships that facilitate border-crossing for the variety of actors involved in TLP …

Commment Letter Re Regulatory Objectives To The Aba Commission On The Future Of Legal Services, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

This document is the comment letter that I sent to the ABA Commission on the Future of Legal Services regarding the draft regulatory objectives it circulated. It made 3 points: 1) urging the ABA to adopt regulatory objectives, even if members disagreed with the particular items in the ABA's draft since ABA regulatory objectives will encourage jurisdictions to discuss and identify their own regulatory objectives; 2) suggesting a change to the ABA list of objectives if it decided to amend the draft objectives; and 3) encouraging ABA members to remember tat regulatory objectives address the "WHY?" question in the who-what-where-when-why-and-how …

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is a thirty-eight-member intergovernmental organization whose mission is to fight money laundering and terrorism financing; the U.S. is a founding member of the FATF. The FATF is best known for its 40 Recommendations, many of which are directed towards various kinds of “gatekeepers” who are in a position to facilitate or inhibit money laundering and terrorism financing.

The Legal World Is Flat: Globalization And Its Effect On Lawyers Practicing In Non-Global Law Firms, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

While lawyers in these large global law firms usually are aware of why globalization is relevant to them, other U.S. lawyers may not think that the globalization phenomenon affects them. A comment frequently heard is "Law is local so I don't have to worry about globalization affecting me or my practice." The goal of this article is to look at Friedman's work through the lens of legal services and to answer several questions, including: • Whether Friedman's analysis is relevant to what has happened in the field of legal services; • Whether a U.S. lawyer who doesn't practice in a …

Putting The Legal Profession’S Monopoly On The Practice Of Law In A Global Context, Laurel S. Terry Oct 2015

Putting The Legal Profession’S Monopoly On The Practice Of Law In A Global Context, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

When considering the proper scope of the U.S. legal profession’s monopoly, regulators and commentators may find it useful to compare the scope of the U.S. monopoly with the legal profession monopolies found in other countries. This Article surveys what we know—and do not know—about the scope of the monopoly in countries other than the United States. The Article finds that the state of knowledge on this topic is relatively undeveloped, that the scope of the U.S. legal profession’s monopoly appears to be larger than the scope of the monopoly found in some other countries, but that the “conventional wisdom” may …
