* - While I rarely include articles from state and local bar journals (not to be confused with the law review-like journals that several sections of the ABA publish), this is a particularly meaty article about a very important topic from the selective and well-edited organ of the third largest state bar. If you run across anything comparable that you think merits the blog's attention, please forward me a copy, citation, or both.
