E-Mail Etiquette For Lawyers

One of my colleagues at St. John's Law School, Judge Jerry Lebovits wrote a very interesting December 2009 article for the NYS Bar Journal entitled E-Mail Netiquette for Lawyers.(No link available). It provides some common sense advice concerning the use of email. His general advice is "Think.Pause. Think again, Then send." He warns attorneys not to hide behind the electronic curtain, to end confrontations, to be concise and to limit back and forth lengthly conversations. Check the article out.
