After the Storm:
Gulf Coast Lawyers Rebuild

Neither lawyers, clients, nor courts were spared when Hurricane Katrina crashed into the Gulf Coast last year, but with help from northern neighbors and a lot of true grit, the region’s lawyers and judges are getting themselves and their clients back on the road to recovery.
By Michael J. Vitt

“Danger Ahead”:
Ethics Guidelines for Lawyer-Mediators
Lawyers working as mediators must look to multiple sources for ethical guidance. Examination of the new Model Standards for Mediators, Rule 114, and the Rules of Professional Conduct suggests that conflicts among the rules may prove troublesome.
By Carolyn Chalmers

By Roy S. Ginsburg
