2012: New Year, New (and Old) Risks

A few interesting updates as we kick off the new year:
  • The ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20, the body charged with reviewing and recommending changes to the Model Rules, recently issued a Summary of Actions, writing: "For two years, we listened to all elements of the profession as well  as clients, consumer groups and businesses that support, sell to, and report on the profession.  Our proposals respond to what we have heard and are intended to address the following developments…"
  • From the frequently linked and hat-tipped Legal Ethics Forum -- John Steele published his "Top Ten Legal Ethics Stories of 2011." It’s excellent reading.
