ABA Essay Contest on Legal Malpractice

From Legal Ethics Forum comes word of an ABA essay contest open to students and ABA Young Lawyer Division members.   The question posed is "whether a party who has engaged in fraud (or that party‚Äôs successor) has standing to sue a lawyer based on conduct relating to the fraud itself, or if such a claim is barred by the doctrine of in pari delicto."

The full hypo is available here.   The winner receives a $5,000 prize and an all expense paid trip to the Spring 2011 National Legal Malpractice Conference in Boston in April 2011.
