ISBN: 1541324730
Release Date: 2016-12-27
Genre:

The toughest ethical issues for lawyers aren't the ones that come up on law school exams. Practicing lawyers have more practical questions, such as: (1) when may I finally shred my closed files? (2) what magic words do I need to make the arbitration clause in my engagement agreement enforceable? (3) how can I use social media to enhance my reputation rather than to ruin it? (4) what are the 10 ways to avoid disciplinary complaints? (5) what are the 8 keys to a compliant law firm website? Louisiana Legal Ethics: Standards & Commentary (2017), is a newly-updated compendium of Louisiana legal ethics standards. It includes the full text of the Louisiana Rules of Professional Conduct, annotations addressing the history and adoption of each rule, ABA comments, and important Louisiana case law through December 2016. Finally, it includes materials on "professionalism" and answers to frequently asked legal ethics questions. Dane S. Ciolino edits and annotates this book. He serves as the Alvin R. Christovich Distinguished Professor of Law at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, where he teaches legal ethics, advocacy, and evidence.

The Work of the British Law Commissions

Author: Shona Wilson Stark
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9781509906925
Release Date: 2017-07-13
Genre: Law

The Law Commission (of England and Wales) and the Scottish Law Commission were both established in 1965 to promote the reform of the laws of their respective jurisdictions. Since then, they have each produced hundreds of reports across many areas of law. They are independent of government yet rely on governmental funding and governmental approval of their proposed projects. They also rely on both government and Parliament (and, occasionally, the courts or other bodies) to implement their proposals. This book examines the tension between independence and implementation and recommends how a balance can best be struck. It proposes how the Commissions should choose their projects given that their duties outweigh their resources, and how we should assess the success, or otherwise, of their output. Countries around the world have created law reform bodies in the Commissions' image. They may wish to reflect on the GB Commissions' responses to the changes and challenges they have faced to reappraise their own law reform machinery. Equally, the GB Commissions may seek inspiration from other commissions' experiences. The world the GB Commissions inhabit now is very different from when they were established. They have evolved to remain relevant in the face of devolution, the UK's changing relationship with the European Union, increasing pressure for accountability and decreasing funding. Further changes to secure the future of independent law reform are advanced in this book.

The Bayou Strangler

Author: Fred Rosen
Publisher: Open Road Media
ISBN: 9781504039499
Release Date: 2017-10-03
Genre: True Crime

The true story of Louisiana serial killer Ronald Dominique’s ten-year murder spree, the men he slayed, and the detectives who hunted him down. In 1997, the bodies of young African American men began turning up in the cane fields of the quiet suburbs of New Orleans. The victims—many of them transient street hustlers—had been brutally raped and strangled, but police had no leads on the killer’s identity. The murders continued, leaving southeast Louisiana’s gay community rattled and authorities desperate for a break in the case. Then, Detectives Dennis Thornton and Dawn Bergeron came together as task force partners, indefatigable in their decade-long effort to track down the killer. In 2006, DNA evidence finally linked the murders to a suspect: the unassuming Ronald Joseph Dominique, who had lived under the radar for years, working as a pizza deliveryman and meter reader. But who was Ronald Dominique and what led him to commit such heinous crimes? With direct access to the investigation, Dominique’s confession, and all of the killer’s body dump sites in throughout the state, author Fred Rosen enters the warped mind of a murderer and captures a troubled, disturbing, and broken life. As with the many other serial killers he has covered, including Jeffrey Dahmer (the Milwaukee Cannibal) and Dennis Rader (the BTK Killer), Rosen provides a horrifying and fascinating account of the lengths to which a bloodthirsty monster will go to lure and brutalize his victims.
