Featured Discussion underway now!

Our Featured Discussion on contingency fee reform, with leading legal ethicists Lester Brickman and Richard Painter, has begun. Professor Brickman has started the discussion with a description of the contingency fee problem and a summary of his "early offer" proposal as a potential solution. For a fuller overview of the participants' positions, see my earlier entry here. Check back here throughout the week to see the conversation unfold.
