Our own Howie Erichson (Fordham) has posted a forward to the Fordham Law Review's symposium on Civil Procedure and the Legal Profession on SSRN. Here's the abstract:
This Foreword introduces the papers of the 2011 Fordham Law Review symposium on Civil Procedure and the Legal Profession. The papers address a number of topics at the intersection of procedure and legal ethics, including sanctions, conflicts of interest, work product doctrine, evidence preservation, attorneys’ fees, class actions, and the duties of MDL leadership counsel. The Foreword introduces these papers and briefly reflects on the perspectives of proceduralists and ethicists.
