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. Thank you all.

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 @ firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
This week, the ABA released a formal opinion clarifying (somewhat) the obligations lawyers have when a data breach occurs involving (or having a substantial likelihood of involving) material client information.
Just in time for Cybersecurity Awareness month 2018.
You can find Formal Opinion 483 here.
The Prize will be awarded at the AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans in January.
If you’re students are using used copies of the Pearce Knake textbook and need to purchase access to the CasebookPlus questions and other lending library materials, they may do so here for $35.
