Should Lawyers Be Required to Provide Clients With More Information on Past Matters Handled

The Professional Prospectus: A Call for Effective Professional Disclosure by Benjamin P. Edwards :: SSRN:

This article argues that lawyers should be required to disclose more information about past legal matters they have handled so that consumers can make informed decisions. I tend to agree that a lawyer should voluntarily disclose that (a) he has never handled that type of case before; (b) he has not tried this type of case to verdict; and (c) he is not licensed in a certain state.
