Lawyers, Regulation Of, Laurel S. Terry Dec 2014

Lawyers, Regulation Of, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

This article was written for the second edition of the International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences. It begins with a “Definitions” section that notes several reasons why it can be difficult to discuss the topic of the “regulation of lawyers.” First, there is no agreed-upon definition of the term “lawyer.” In jurisdictions that have a unified legal profession, the meaning of the term may be clear, but in jurisdictions that do not have a unified legal profession (e.g. solicitors and barristers in England or jurisdictions that do not permit in-house counsel to be licensed “lawyers”), one must specify …

U.S. Legal Ethics: The Coming Of Age Of Global And Comparative Perspectives, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

This Article reviews the influence of comparative law during the past 100 years on the field of U.S. legal ethics. It begins by defining the field of legal ethics and then divides the last 100 years into three distinct comparative legal ethics eras. The first era consists of the time period between 1904 and 1973, during which there was both domestic and comparative legal ethics scholarship, although a relatively small amount compared to later years. The second time period, which dates from 1974, when legal ethics became a required course, to 1997, represents the coming of age of domestic legal …

German Mdps: Lessons To Learn, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

This article is the third of four major articles or book chapters that I have written about MDPs. This article focuses on German multidisciplinary partnerships (MDPs) between lawyers and accountants. The German MDP experience is important because Germany is one of the few jurisdictions that expressly permits MDPs and because conferences about World Trade Organization's General Agreement on Trade in Services (the GATS) have cited to Germany when suggesting that other countries' MDP bans may be unnecessarily restrictive. After introducing common MDP regulatory issues, this article focuses on Germany. The article explains Germany's current regulation of MDPs and provides a …

The Paris Forum was the first meeting of lawyers from around the world devoted solely to the topic of transnational legal practice.

The multi-day Paris Forum, however, was the first multi-day conference devoted to this topic. This paper …
