Bringing Legal Ethics into the 21st Century

Bringing Legal Ethics into the 21st Century | Reinvent the Legal Profession | Scoop.it

The rules of professional responsibility (legal ethics) which govern lawyers are hopelessly out of date, but more important, they are completely out of touch with what our clients need and expect from their lawyers. The impact of the rules against lawyer advertising on the use of social media to educate the public and to market legal services is very problematic. The conflict of interest rules are more often used as a sword to hinder and delay cases rather Thanasides a shield to protect legitimate interests of clients. It is time that legal ethics were massively overhauled to reflect the speed at which legal problems arise and need to be resolved.. Otherwise, lawyers will go the way of the buggy whip.
