Legal research and knowledge of applicable law are part of the definition of a "competent attorney." In today's technology oriented world, can an attorney provide competent and ethical representation to a client using only print legal resources? This was the theme of a presentation I did as a member of a panel at a Patent, Trademark CLE program for the D.C. Bar. Competency of the attorney and reasonableness of the research have been looked at using a standard of care analysis. Typically the court tries to determine if the attorney acted with the ordinary skill and knowledge possessed by other attorneys in similar circumstances. Reasonableness of the research is often determined by time available to the attorney and the actual efforts put forth in researching the issues. For an attorney to be adequately prepared under this standard of care analysis, they are required to do the necessary legal research and investigation of the factual basis of client's matter. At a minimum, this includes research in the print resources for cases, statutes or theories of law that support their client's position.
Extractions: E-mail Story Print Story This section provides general information about traditional legal issues inherent in the patient-physician relationship. Many of these legal issues stem from physicians' ethical obligations to patients. As stated in the AMA's Code of Medical Ethics , ethical values and legal principles are closely related. However, since the ethical standard typically goes beyond what the law requires, it is important that physicians are aware of both legal and ethical obligations. The law, which sometimes is slow to change, has not always kept pace with some of the recent fundamental changes in the delivery of health care, and it is fairly difficult to predict how courts will interpret a physician's obligations relative to the rapidly changing health care system. Therefore, taking the ethical highroad may be both in the best interest of a physician's patient and the best risk management strategy. Informed Consent Ending the Patient-Physician Relationship Patient Confidentiality To find out more about a physician's ethical obligations, consult the AMA's Code of Medical Ethics by downloading the

Extractions: LU-Announce First Things 41 (March 1994): 21-27. Chicago's financial district and the seat of its city government are only a few blocks apart, yet they belong to two different worlds. I learned this in my first few months of law practice in 1964 when, as low person on the totem pole, I had to handle routine motions in both state and federal courts. There was scarcely any difference in atmosphere between my firm's sedate quarters in the Continental Bank building and the austere federal courthouse just around the corner. An aura of solemnity surrounded the federal judges in their courtrooms, as it did our senior partners in their spacious but simply furnished offices. Lawyers exchanged pleasantries and conversed genially in the hallways of both places. To walk from lower LaSalle Street to the municipal and county courts on Washington between Clark and Dearborn, however, was to pass through a culture warp. From the outside, Chicago's Civic Center on its massive concrete plaza was no less imposing than the federal building. Inside was bedlam. The Civic Center was filled with everything that made Chicago such an exhilarating and alarming city-jostling, shouting, joking, cajoling, backslapping, backstabbing, bargaining, dealing, favors granted, grudges paid with interest, intimidation, bribery, conciliation, grand gestures, obscene remarks, and the occasional spontaneous act of generosity.

Extractions: hostName = '.typepad.com'; Main "Going bare" is the term commonly used when an attorney or other professional elects not to carry insurance against his or her liability for professional negligence or malpractice. The usual reasons for choosing to go without malpractice insurance are economic: the attorney estimates that the likely cost of responding personally to any liability will be less than the often high cost of paying the insurance premiums. The attorney's economic self-interest in this calculation is clear, but what of the attorney's obligations to clients who have retained his or her services in the expectation that there will be insurance available to respond should the attorney, heaven forfend, provide those services in a negligent fashion? Recovering web journal-ist David Giacalone has passed along this exchange from the American Bar Association's Dialogue magazine between the manager of a Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) a service devoted to providing members of the public access to attorneys who may be able to meet their needs in a particular field or locale and Richard Zitrin, director of the Center for Applied Legal Ethics at the University of San Francisco, writing as

Extractions: DISINTERMEDIATION AND ETHICS Table of Contents VIII.DISINTERMEDIATING AND RE- ENGINEERING THE LEGAL PROCESS A. POWER OF THE INTERNET Most law firms think of their Internet websites only as a marketing tool. However, they can also be very important tools for improving client relations, increasing revenues and lowering costs. Internet websites effectively publish the firm brochure and newsletter on the Internet at low cost. However, the real power of the Internet is that it allows two unrelated computer systems to communicate with each other. The power of this idea can be clearly seen in email, the most basic, but at present the most useful, Internet based client relation tool. Email sent over the Internet from one computer to another is encoded in a common communications protocol (TCP/IP). This protocol allows the transmitting and recipient computer to communicate, whether the computers are the same kind or not. This simple concept means that lawyers can now send messages to any client who is connected to the Internet. Previously, law firms that wanted to electronically communicate with clients had to call in specialists to properly configure the firm's computers to communicate with the client's computers. Today you simply ask for the client's email address. B. DISINTERMEDIATION

Extractions: In spite of the way things seem, lawyers are not always villains and not always to blame for stirring up conflict. But even for lawyers who mean well, the tools they use and the system they work in will usually increase conflict. Law schools do not require courses in communication or negotiation. Rather, they stress manipulation of rules of law, aggressive and defensive strategy, how to take any side of any case and make the most of it, how to argue, and how to get the most financial advantage in every situation.

Extractions: Best's Review October 2001 The Meter Is Running Opinion: Litigation management, a critical tool for insurers, is being subjected to legal challenges. Policyholders will pay the price if insurers don't fight for the right to manage legal costs. By Stephen Zielezienski I recently read that insurance defense work is known by some defense lawyers as "fast-clock work," because it is easy to bill the client - the insurance company - for twice the amount of time actually spent doing the work. Such billing practices by certain unscrupulous insurance defense lawyers is a convincing argument in favor of insurers' need to preserve the use of litigation guidelines and other litigation management tools. It also is but one example of how some defense attorneys manage to bill their insurance company clients 35 hours in a single day. Imagine the situation if these same attorneys convinced state bar associations, legislatures, and the courts to block insurers from using litigation guidelines under the erroneous guise that such guidelines are the "unauthorized practice of law." In the past year insurers have managed to preserve their ability to manage policyholder litigation. However, threats remain from defense
