Our co-author Bruce A. Green has a terrific piece in the current volume of The Professional Lawyer titled “The Challenges and Rewards of Teaching Legal Ethics.” As a newer member of the PR community, I can’t agree enough with Bruce’s recognition of the support of the community of PR professors.

My students have been quite interested in the complaints filed against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, so I prepared some materials for our class today. I have a set of slides I’m happy to share – email me @ email@example.com. For quick research, two pieces I can recommend, both from Russell Wheeler @ the Brookings Institute, are the recent short but concise and clear summary article “What’s happening with the ethics complaints against Brett Kavanaugh?” along with 56 Ariz. L. Rev. 479 (2014), A Primer on Regulating Federal Judicial Ethics.
