UPDATE:

I would be remiss if I failed to mention that J. Kirby Inwood sent me this email back on April 4th, 2013, even though he doesn’t like me very much:

Twitter’s No Place For A Lawyer With An “Aggressive and Zealous Attitude”

April 23, 2013

Via the Toronto Star:

A Toronto criminal lawyer’s Twitter account has sparked outrage online after several offensive tweets were posted in the wake of the Boston bombing.

The tweets were sent last week from Twitter account @Dasilvalaw, which has since been deleted, though several retweets can still be found online.

“I pray for the suspects. May they slay the police army of satan. Death to all police!” reads one posting sent from @Dasilvalaw. Other tweets from that account contained vitriolic responses to offended Twitter users, including “am praying that u get violently raped. May cancer be upon u.!!!”

The lawyer, David Da Silva, 34, said in an emailed response sent Monday to the Star that he is “not the author of any such tweets.”

Asked in a follow-up email if his account had been hacked, the defence lawyer said he is “having this matter investigated at this time.”

Lawyer Nadia Liva, who sent an email to the Star saying she is acting as his counsel, said he is “very concerned” and “we are currently investigating the tweets, which were not authored by Mr. Da Silva.”

I don’t know Da Silva, either personally or professionally, but his website bio is generic: (more…)

Ben Trachtenberg, “Law School Marketing and Legal Ethics”

January 8, 2013

Ben Trachtenberg (University of Missouri School of Law) has posted “Law School Marketing and Legal Ethics”, Nebraska Law Review (June 2013) forthcoming/University of Missouri School of Law Legal Studies Research Paper No. 2012-41. Here’s the abstract:

Law schools have misled prospective students for years about the value of legal education. In some cases, law school officials have engaged in outright deceit, knowingly spreading false information about their schools. More commonly, they have presented statistics — especially those concerning the employment outcomes of law graduates — in ways nearly guaranteed to confuse readers. These deceptions and sharp practices violate the norms of the legal profession, a profession that scrupulously regulates the advertising of legal services. The deceptions also violate ethical rules prohibiting lawyers from engaging in dishonesty, misrepresentation, and deceit.

This article exposes how pitches aimed at prospective students, including the seemingly straightforward recitation of statistics on law school websites, still paint an unduly rosy picture of the legal employment market. Focusing on Rule 8.4(c) of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, the article explains that law school officials have exposed themselves to professional discipline, which may offer a solution to the pervasive problem of misleading law school marketing.

Googlito Ergo Sum (or “You Want Fries With That?”)

October 17, 2012

I stumbled upon a flashy new Canadian blog today called “Advocates Daily“.

There’s a whole lot of stuff going on the site, with bells and whistles galore. It resembles an online newspaper format, of some sort. Actually, it is vaguely reminiscent of those RSS aggregators and  paper.li dailies that clog up my Twitter stream.

Rather than dismiss it outright, with a few minutes to kill, I noodled around the site and here is what it’s all About: (more…)
