Introducing Stephen Warne’s legal ethics blog from Australia

The title of the blog is :  Stephen Warne on professional negligence, regulation and discipline around the world.  Check it out by clicking here. It is well organized and interesting.  Legal Ethics Forum has a recent post about a?n entry on Stephen’s blog dealing with what US lawyers are likely to find an unfamiliar, if not strange  obligation to correct an opponent’s “misapprehensions.” Very interesting.  Unlike at least one member of our Supreme Court, bloggers are free to learn from and to cite “foreign law.” Chances are that being a blogger is more fun than being a Supreme Court Justice.  The pay  (not nearly adequate), professional acclaim  and opportunity to perform public service that come with being a Supreme Court Justice are enviable, but the freedom bloggers have is more than cold comfort.  It’s a joyful opportunity to belong to a community of – in this case lawyers – from around the world who share ideas and information about what is rapidly becoming a global profession.  Once again, welcome to Stephen Warne from Australia!
