Three recent articles of possible interest to observers of the legal profession, and recently abstracted and linked on Larry Solum's blog, are:
- Daniel Schwarcz (Harvard Law School) has posted Beyond Disclosure: The Case for Banning Contingent Commissions about insurers' payment of commissions to brokers and "independent" agents, and possible conflicts of interest. Link to Solum here.
- Ellen P. Aprill (Loyola Law School Los Angeles) has posted What Critiques of Sarbanes-Oxley Can Teach about Regulation of Nonprofit Governance about SOX's lessons even though it technically is not about not-for-profits. His link here.
- Bruce A. Green (Fordham University School of Law) has posted The Religious Lawyering Critique about the role of religion in the profession and practice, for instance versus the 'hired gun' model. "Finally, the article questions the critics' premise that when religious and professional expectations do conflict, religious expectations are necessarily better." Link here.
