Valpo lecture offers CLE credit, discussion on responsibility

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Valparaiso University School of Law will offer CLE credits for those who attend the law school's 11th annual Tabor Institute in Legal Ethics Thursday.

Stephen Gillers, professor of law at New York University School of Law, will present the 2:30 p.m. lecture, "Virtual Clients: An Idea in Search of a Theory (With Limits)." The lecture will explore the obligations lawyers have toward non-traditional clients - those who don't walk into a law office. Gillers will identify some of the categories of non-traditional clients and what duties these clients are owed.

At 4 p.m., Gillers will give another lecture titled, "Here's the Gun: A Lawyer's Responsibility for Real Evidence." This talk is free and open to the public. Gillers will discuss how the courts and the bar have tried to resolve the issue of what lawyers should do when a client presents self-incriminating evidence. Gillers' examples will include the alleged advice of an Arthur Andersen attorney regarding the treatment of evidence.

Gillers is a leading scholar on the rules governing lawyers and judges. He chairs the American Bar Association's Joint Committee on Lawyer Regulation. His book, "Regulation of Lawyers: Problems of Law and Ethics" is in its seventh edition.

The purpose of the Tabor Institute is to enrich the school's legal curriculum through reflection on the vocation and responsibilities of lawyers to their clients and society as a whole. The annual institute is endowed by Glenn Tabor, a graduate of the law school and founder of the Valparaiso law firm of Blachy Tabor Bozik & Hartman.

Lawyers who wish to receive credit must RSVP by Tuesday to (219) 465-7893 or e-mail Lisa.Todd@valpo.edu. The event will be at Wesemann Hall, 656 Greenwich St., Valparaiso. A reception will follow.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
