Alice Woolley - The lawyer as advisor: advocate, judge or... friend?
 
01:02:22
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the UBC Faculty of Law. When lawyers advise clients they help the law to accomplish both its function as a system of social settlement, and the respect for the governed reflected in its processes and structure -- i.e. the rule of law. A lawyer can only do so, however, if his/her advice provides an objectively reasonable assessment of the law, while also facilitating the accomplishment of the client's goals and objectives. The lawyer as advisor is neither an advocate for the client's goals, nor an adjudicator of the legality of those goals. Rather, the lawyer's advising role has an irreducible duality, requiring good faith respect for both the law and the client -- not unlike the attitude taken by a friend when offering advice.Unfortunately, the law governing Canadian lawyers does not provide sufficient guidance to lawyers as to their obligations when advising clients. About the speaker: Alice Woolley is a Professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Calgary. Prior to joining the Faculty in 2004 Professor Woolley practiced law in Calgary, working in the areas of utility regulation and civil litigation. As an academic, she specializes in legal ethics and professional regulation, with a particular interest in the intersection between professional regulation, moral philosophy and moral psychology. Professor Woolley is the author of Understanding Lawyers' Ethics in Canada and co-editor and co-author of Lawyers' Ethics and Professional Regulation (2d ed.). She has published articles on topics such as the good character requirement for law society admission, the independence of the bar, civility, legal ethics teaching and the normative conception of the lawyer's role. Professor Woolley has her LLM from Yale Law School and her BA and LLB from the University of Toronto, where she graduated with the gold medal. In 1995-1996 she was a law clerk to then Chief Justice of Canada, the Rt. Hon. Antonio Lamer.

Sign up now at https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/corporate-lawyers‘Corporate Lawyers: Ethics, Regulation and Purpose’ is a free online course by The University of Birmingham on FutureLearn.com Imagine you are a lawyer advising a client wanting to take over a large company. From your discussions with the client, you think it likely that, after they buy the company, several thousand of the company’s employees will be made redundant by your client. Such redundancies will be perfectly legal. Do you, as a lawyer, have an obligation to counsel your clients on the ethics of making those employees redundant? Or is it none of your business? Are you instead simply there to do what the client asks you to do, as long as that request is within the bounds of the law? In this free, three-week course, we will teach you about the role of lawyers in society and about how they can (and should) balance their obligations to their clients against wider obligations to the public interest. We will cover how different lawyers are regulated, and explore key debates in lawyers’ ethics: how we might decide whether what lawyers do is right or wrong. #FLlegalethics At FutureLearn, we want to inspire learning for life. We offer a diverse selection of free, high-quality online courses from some of the world's leading universities and other outstanding cultural institutions.

Career Choice Series: Lawyer Professional Responsibility and Loss Prevention
 
37:54
We’re all familiar with lawyer ethics but did you know it’s also an area attorneys specialize in? This fascinating area of law helps lawyers navigate through thorny situations (usually involving violation of the rules of conduct such as confidentiality, privilege, or conflicts of interest) to help them stay within ethical confines in order to keep their law license in good standing. You could find yourself advising attorneys at private law firms or working for a state agency prosecuting attorneys before a disciplinary board. Since this is a niche area, lawyers who practices in it are often sought after for their expertise as an expert on panels, as authors, and helping jurisdictions review and update their rules of professional conduct. It’s a great fit for someone who likes the flexibility of doing both litigation and policy work. Lucian T. Pera is a partner in Adams and Reese LLP, whose practice includes commercial litigation, media law, and the representation of lawyers, law firms, and others on issues of legal ethics and lawyer professional responsibility. He was a member of the ABA “Ethics 2000” Commission, which rewrote the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and chaired the Tennessee Bar Association committee that led to the adoption of significantly revised Tennessee ethics rules patterned after the Model Rules. Theresa (“Terri”) Gronkiewicz is Senior Counsel at the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility (CPR) where she advises on ABA policy, develops programs and frequently speaks on issues concerning ethics, professionalism, lawyer and judicial regulation and professional responsibility. Her career began at the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) where she investigated and prosecuted lawyer disciplinary matters; then in private practice for 23 years, as Of Counsel to a small law firm in Chicago, representing judges, lawyers and law students in various ethics, disciplinary and character and fitness matters. Our speakers will discuss their experiences advising or prosecuting lawyers on ethical issues. They’ll provide invaluable insight into how to break in to this field, what drew them to it, the pros and cons, and what a typical day in their work entails. Speakers: Lucian T.

The Law and Ethics of Digital Piracy: Evidence from Harvard Law School Graduates
 
55:44
Harvard Law School is one of the top law schools in the world and educates the intellectual and financial elites. Lawyers are held to the highest professional and ethical standards. And yet, when it comes to digital piracy, they overwhelmingly perceive file sharing as an acceptable social practice – as long as individuals do not derive monetary benefits from it. So should digital files be considered a commons? In this talk, Dariusz and Jerome identify and discuss the social and economic contexts in which file sharing is considered more or less acceptable by law practitioners. In the process, they foster a conversation on the possible changes in regulation that would allow us to catch up with the established social norm.

Only in DC: Ethics Rule Permits Non-lawyers to Own Law Firms

Mar. 19, 2014 (Mimesis Law) -- Mike McDevitt, CEO for Tandem Legal Group, is not a lawyer, but thanks to an obscure rule in Washington, D.C.'s code of ethics for lawyers he is able to have an ownership interest in the law firm he runs. But that doesn't mean he's advising clients on legal matters. "My level of knowledge on law is not that high, so I'm not going to get involved in legal decisions for our organization," he tells Lee Pacchia. "My job as CEO is to help our organization run an efficient and effective firm." McDevitt also talks about Tandem's willingness to take equity stakes in its clients as payment for services. "You'd be amazed at what that little small percentage of holdings does for an attorney as he's sitting at his desk there wondering [if he] should he bill that extra quarter hour."

Lawyer in Brownsville Texas - Lawyers & Ethics
 
00:39
Certain Lawyers in Brownsville Texas were recently subjected to intense public scrutiny after a Federal investigation uncovered numerous illegal and unethical activities. While only a handful of lawyers were convicted or disciplined, several members of the legal community in Brownsville were collaterally affected by the black cloud of suspicion created by the Federal investigation. It is important that Lawyers and the legal system operate for the betterment of society, and that the mistakes of the past are not allowed to be repeated. From the Preamble to the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct: 1. A lawyer is a representative of clients, an officer of the legal system and a public citizen having special responsibility for the quality of justice. Lawyers, as guardians of the law, play a vital role in the preservation of society. The fulfillment of this role requires an understanding by lawyers of their relationship with and function in our legal system. A consequent obligation of lawyers is to maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct. http://www.rggarzalaw.com/

Entire TV Show http://insiderexclusive.com/grasso_tv.htm Gary Grasso of the Law Offices of Grasso, Bass & Williams is featured in an exciting, exclusive, in-depth and inside interview, discussing Lawyers You Love to Hate. Gary addresses the incredible difficulties lawyers find themselves in when they commit legal malpractice. He points out that malpractice occurs when a lawyer fails to render competent professional service to a client and the client is damages as a result of the failure. The three major theories of liability are negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of contract. To prove malpractice, you must prove that your lawyer owed you a duty to represent you competently, that he or she made a mistake or otherwise breached the duty owed to you, and that your lawyer's mistake harmed you, causing you damages. Additionally, you must file your lawsuit within the statutory time period or "statute of limitations" established by state law for legal malpractice claims. Gary has focused his practice for over twenty-eight years in professional liability & ethics litigation expanding more recently into gaming law. He has represented Chicago area lawyers and their firms before the federal and Illinois courts, and the Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission. He has represented a gaming company for various licensing and regulatory matters before state gaming commissions and the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC). 
As a litigator for over 28 years, Gary has handled a wide range of civil cases concerning physicians, attorneys, and serious permanent injuries. He has tried jury cases in the state and federal courts of Illinois and participated in numerous mediations. Gary has defended doctors and Chicago area hospitals, including Cook County Hospital (now Stroger Hospital), Northwestern and Childrens Memorial Hospitals. The attorneys of Grasso, Bass & Williams started their law firm in 2006 to provide legal services drawing from their wide backgrounds. Several attorneys are experienced in lobbying at the state and local level, as well as providing consulting in public service, employment relations, and legal ethics.

Leet Business Law Symposium Richard Humes, Esq., Associate General Counsel, Securities and Exchange Commission Commentators: Geralyn M. Presti, Esq., Senior VP, General Counsel, Assistant Secretary, Forest City Enterprises, Inc. Robert N. Rapp, Partner, Calfee Halter and Griswold New laws impose novel burdens on corporate lawyers to report possible legal problems up the corporate chain of command and in some cases to withdraw from representing a client and divulge evidence of client misdeeds. These new duties seem to clash with the traditional notion that lawyers owe an overriding duty to the client. This Symposium will discuss what the new law is, where it is headed, and how attorneys can best satisfy their legal obligations while serving the interests of the client.
