The bad news is we've been less than diligent, at least the beginning of the year, in posting the top ten articles, as measured by SSRN downloads in the Legal Ethics & Professional Responsibility Journal over the last sixty days. The good news is that it is interesting to see all these new pieces as a result of the SSRN turnover.
While we were gone, Mae Quinn's (Tennessee, left) wonderfully titled but nevertheless pointed article (see the abstract) jumped to number 2 on the hit parade.
