Opinions, Voices & Ideas

  • Inside the Bar
  • No Golden Handcuff
  • Some people think that mandatory bars provide golden handcuffs to their members, but I disagree. I believe if there is a golden handcuff, it is in the form of the obligation that mandatory bars have to their members and not vice versa.
  • President's Message
  • One Nation, Indivisible
  • When it comes to the multijurisdictional practice of law, we're still one nation. So why erect barriers to national practice?
  • Ethics
  • New Rules of Conduct for Limiting Representation
  • The new Rules of Professional Conduct for Attorneys, effective July 1, 2007, permit lawyers to provide to clients limited scope representation - commonly called "unbundled legal services" - but impose limitations and requirements that differ from the current rules.
  • Managing Risk
  • Risky Practice Areas
  • Some practice areas by their nature generate more disciplinary grievances and malpractice insurance claims than others. If you practice in plaintiffs' personal injury, real estate, family, estate planning, or criminal law, make sure you're not making common mistakes that increase your risk exposure even more.
