On Blogging and Lawyers (Part 1 of 2)

Hull & Hull LLP General Interest Tags: , , , , , 0 Comments

Blogging has certainly become popular in the last several years as an important source of information and communication. So much so that even lawyers have jumped on the bandwagon. And who would have thought? Being the risk-averse creatures we are, you would not expect publishing our musings for the world to read to be a natural fit; after all, law school is spent teaching you how to avoid risk or, perhaps, how to remedy the consequences of risks taken by your clients. And so, lawyers were slow to wade into the vast sea of bloggers. 

But is blogging so different from anything else we do? Writing is a large part of a lawyer’s profession. Like any profession, education and the sharing of information with colleagues and the public in general are required not only to ensure you keep on the cutting edge of the law but also for marketing purposes. 

Today, the World Wide Web is as acceptable as the golf course for legitimate networking and collegial interaction. You’ll also find that lawyers are now increasingly found on LinkedIn (the professional’s version of Facebook or an electronic rolodex if you will). You can find me on there along with many of my Hull & Hull LLP colleagues. It is nice to know that whether you like to wear golf shoes or slippers while networking, the choice is yours. 

There are some excellent law blogs out there and if you’d like to see just how many lawyers are blogging as proof of my claim, check out  this website  where you will find blogs on almost every legal topic imaginable (that was a challenge to think up one that isn’t covered yet)!

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog when I will point you to some interesting blogs you may find of use including a blog specifically designed to help lawyers avoid risk. Very clever…..

Happy Monday!

Rules of Conduct – An Estates’ Perspective: An Introduction to the ACTEC Model Rules of Conduct and the Commentaries- Part II

Suzana Popovic-Montag Archived BLOG POSTS - Hull on Estates Tags: , , , , , , , 0 Comments

In addition to the basic themes of the Commentaries (see our June 9, 2006 blog), they also reflect the role that the trusts and estates lawyer has traditionally played as the lawyer for members of the family. In that role, a trusts and estates lawyer frequently represents the fiduciary of a Trust or an Estate and one or more of the beneficiaries.

In drafting the Commentaries, the authors have attempted to express views that are consistent with the spirit of the MRPC (Model Rules of Professional Conduct) as evidenced in the following passage:

"The Rules of Professional Conduct are rules of reason. They should be interpreted with reference to the purposes of legal representation and the law itself."

The editors note (at page 1 of the Commentaries) that a goal of the Commentaries is to encourage a full discussion between a lawyer and a client as to the scope and the cost of the representation. Furthermore, the duties of trusts and estates lawyers are also carefully considered and described. In the U.S. jurisdictions, many of the parameters of the duties of estates and trusts lawyers are set out by opinions rendered in malpractice cases, which provide some guidance regarding some of the ethical duties of the lawyer as well.
