So, life really moves fast. Though, while it seems like advancements in AI are also really moving fast, maybe they aren’t moving as fast as the hype. That is the topic for today. Now, when I say life really moves fast … I mean that between my starting this post yesterday and today a giant […]
Tag: Practice of Law
Some days the inspiration kicks in and other days it most certainly does not. If this were Instagram, I’d likely try to spout some sort of perspiration to inspiration platitude. But this isn’t, so I won’t. I will though write about two items that somehow caught my attention this week and even though I can’t […]
Yesterday, June 20, 2022, was the inaugural federal Juneteenth holiday here in the United States. Far too few lawyers and law firms acknowledged it like we do other federal holidays by … you know, closing and not requiring people to work that day. Admittedly, some federal holidays are not fully observed but given the rampant […]
Some different COVID news.
It is safe to say, at this point, that most of the United States, and particularly southern states such as mine, are treating the pandemic as being over. Whether it actually is or is not remains to be seen. If it is over, its lasting effects will certainly live on. This post isn’t exactly about […]
Confidentiality and credit cards
I have written here in the past about a number of ways that a lawyer’s obligation of confidentiality imposes limits on their ability to do certain things that others can do and even as to subject matter where it seems highly unfair.

This is a question I’ve asked in the past. It is not instinctively an easy question to wrestle with.

But another news item invites the question back into the arena for further discussion. This ABA […]
Now is another of the various times of year throughout the nation when law school graduates finish waiting anxiously for bar results and find out whether they passed and get the opportunity to start digging their way out of the debt they amassed in law school or failed and, thus, have to wrestle with the […]
The scams evolve. So too must lawyers.
I mentioned in a prior post that I was going to be fortunate enough to preside over the first in-person meeting of APRL in many, many moons last week. I’ve also written in the past about APRL has begun working into its programming items we call “Fred Talks.” These are Focused. Rapid. Ethics. Discussions. Shorter […]
I Take No Joy in Writing This.
So, a relatively quick post for this week in terms of content as I’m thrilled to be somewhere else and to be presiding over the first in-person meeting of APRL in two years. A lawyer in Tennessee brought my attention to an article in a recent ABA publication where two academics, Professor Peter Joy and […]
I will not seek pardon for the pun. I will also try not to prolong the nature of this post because the opinion that is the subject matter for today is a very good read, worthy of the limelight. I have written on several occasions about the problematic efforts of two particular members of my […]
