Lawyers' Obligations To The Courts, Byron O. House Dec 1958

Lawyers' Obligations To The Courts, Byron O. House

West Virginia Law Review

This paper will concern itself largely with the duty of lawyers to the courts. It is written from the viewpoint of a country lawyer suddenly catapulted from almost thirty years of practice to his state's court of last resort via eight months on the trial bench. These vantage points have afforded an opportunity to observe the lawyer's duty to the courts in various perspectives. With due respect to the learned scholars who have written on the subject, this small contribution is launched.

The Lawyers' Function Today, Nathaniel R. Howard Jan 1958

The Lawyers' Function Today, Nathaniel R. Howard

Cleveland State Law Review

This is the substance of the graduation address delivered by the writer at the June 1958 Commencement of Cleveland-Marshall Law School. If today's students of the law had engaged in their same study 600 years ago, the law then taught to them and believed by them would have included some principles, precedents, decrees, and even primary statutes which they have embraced in the year of Our Lord 1958.


Attorney's Liens, Arthur F. Lustig Jan 1958

Attorney's Liens, Arthur F. Lustig

Cleveland State Law Review

In former years, an attorney was paid a fee "not as a salary or hire but as a mere gratuity which a counselor cannot demand without doing wrong to his reputation." These customs are long since past. The English rule that a counselor or barrister has no right to charge for his services and that he cannot enforce compensation no longer prevails in Ohio, for example, and in other states. Today, in most jurisdictions, an attorney's right to payment for services rendered is protected by statute. As of the end of 1955, thirty-one states had some form of an attorney's …


Every Day Is Law Day, Lee E. Skeel Jan 1958

Every Day Is Law Day, Lee E. Skeel

Cleveland State Law Review

President Eisenhower proclaimed May 1st of this year as "Law Day," and the day was formally observed throughout the nation. Gratifying as that was, it is hardly enough, in this or any other era, for self-satisfaction about American appreciation of our heritage of liberty under law. More important than appreciation of this priceless heritage is appreciation of the stern duty that goes along with it. Unless we daily earn this prize, we daily lose some of it. Its real strength is the revitalizing effort we add to it in our daily lives. There soon would be no precious "liberty under …

Attorney And Client - Scope Of Attorney's Authority - Client Bound By Wrongful Settlement Of Claim, Robert M. Vorsanger

Michigan Law Review

Plaintiff hired an attorney to prosecute a claim for damages resulting from the alleged negligence of defendant, a chiropodist, in the treatment of plaintiff's wife. Three years after the institution of the suit plaintiff discovered that his attorney had agreed with defendant to settle the suit and had forged plaintiff's name to a release and to a bank draft given by defendant in settlement of the claim. Plaintiff immediately instituted action to have the settlement stipulation deleted from the record and to have the case reinstated for hearing. On appeal from the trial court's decision for plaintiff, held, reversed. …


Constitutional Law - Due Process - Denial Of Admission To The Bar Based On Unwarranted Inferences Of Bad Moral Character, Jerome B. Libin Jan 1958

Constitutional Law - Due Process - Denial Of Admission To The Bar Based On Unwarranted Inferences Of Bad Moral Character, Jerome B. Libin

Michigan Law Review

Power over admission to the bar has long been vested in the judiciary of each state. While the legislature may prescribe certain standards, the state court alone is responsible for the determination of those qualified for the practice of law within its jurisdiction. The application of these standards often demands the exercise of meticulous judgment by the court in reaching its conclusion as to an applicant's fitness. Where, on the evidence or lack of evidence presented, the court finds that it cannot in good conscience grant its approval, the candidate is denied admission. To the extent that such a denial …
