Every now and then, the "unreasonable dangerous products liability blog" posts brief interviews with law professors, practitioners and other commentators in the field of products liability law. Here is a link to an interview with professor Michael J. Virzi of the University of South Carolina School of Law. Virzi, a former prosecutor with the South Carolina Office of Disciplinary counsel, now teaches legal writing and chairs the South Carolina Bar's Ethics Advisory Committee. Here is a list of the questions addressed:
1. What recent developments in ethics law would you recommend that litigators be aware of in 2010?
2. What is the most significant ethics opinion to come out in the last year? Why is it significant?
3. What do you think is the most overlooked ethical rule? Why is it overlooked?
4. As the general public increasingly uses the Internet and social media to communicate, how do you predict that state bars will react to the popularity of this new technology among attorneys?
5. If you could offer young lawyers beginning their careers one piece of advice, what would it be?
6. What do you think is the best depiction in popular culture of an attorney facing an ethical issue?
