Ethics of Alternatives to Billable Hours

Posted by Alan Childress

Lots of law blogs have bemoaned billable hours and the ethical implications of this payment system.  On our blog, 852177_time and her own, Nancy Rapoport has nicely raised such issues for a while now.  Jeff and Mike have chimed in from time to time.  Now David Giacalone at his f/k/a blog here is asking to move the debate beyond billables and into the ethics and practicalities of the alternatives.  And he has a good round-up of and links to various blogs currently replying to Scott Turow's recent polemic on the subject in August's ABA Journal.
