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.

  2. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  3. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  4. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  5. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.
