As part of a team of lawyers at the American Bar Association and Bloomberg BNA, I write and edit the ABA/BNA Lawyers’ Manual on Professional Conduct. Every now and then, someone asks me if they can read them. Most are behind a paywall, but a few are posted on this or that website and are freely available. Here are some of them:
Panelists Examine How Prosecutors Can Be Held Accountable for Misconduct, 27 Law. Man. Prof. Conduct (2012)
APRL Panelists Debate What Role Regulation of Lawyer Ads Should Play in 21st Century, 29 Law. Man. Prof. Conduct 103 (2013) (Oops! The final page of this article, p. 105, was unfortunately not included. The final page online, p. 106, is the end of a different article that I wrote reporting another program from the same conference and the entirety of still another short article, cited in the next paragraph here.)
Lawyers Who Counsel Other Lawyers Should Give This Advice, Judge Suggests, 29 Law. Man. Prof. Conduct 106 (2013) (scroll down to last page)
Internet Marketing Raises Ethics Issues But Bar Representatives See Few Grievances, 29 Law. Man. Prof. Conduct 1 (2013) (you can also access the article here on BNA’s website)
Speakers Say Anticipate Potential Problems Before Lawyer Leaves Firm or Dies Suddenly, 29 Law. Man. Prof. Conduct 4 (2013) (scroll down to 3d article at link)
I’ve also filed reports for the Lawyers’ Manual on cybersecurity, the new ethics regime for solicitors in England and Wales, and government lawyers and ethics, among other topics. And I’ve just finished one on third party opinion letters from last week’s mindblowing Aon Law Firm Symposium, held in Chicago. I was especially pleased to get to cover the session on third party opinions because I recently updated that chapter in the Lawyers’ Manual, and it’s exciting for me to see it published on the ‘net less than 24 hours after final edits.
