Hot Topics in the Legal Profession 2010

Authored by Steven Alan Childress
Introduction by Steven Alan Childress

Current important events in the U.S. legal profession and legal ethics, with up-to-the-minute research and rules, are explored by Tulane law students from an advanced ethics seminar of spring 2010 and several independent study papers. The collection is edited by Tulane legal ethics professor Steven Alan Childress, and he surveys the big stories of 2009-2010 in his Foreword.

Topics include social networking, "friending," and internet advertising (and very recent court decisions about these areas); ancillary businesses controlled by lawyers, particularly under the LMRDA as interpreted by the Obama administration; the Supreme Court's 2009 decision on judicial campaign finance, and its recent aftermath along with policies of judicial recusal and elections; and ethics and professionalism in settlement negotiations.
