RESPONSIBILITY AND THE LEGAL
PROFESSION: A PREVIEW OF THE
UNITED STATES SUPREME
COURT'S 2009-2010 TERM
RENEE NEWMAN KNAKE*
In this article, Prof Knake reviews the ten cases related to the role
of attorneys and the practice of law scheduled to be argued before the
Supreme Court during the October 2009 term. This term marks a high-
water mark in the number of professional responsibility cases that will
be heard before the Court, and Prof Knake surveys the cases to gain
insights into the Court's increased interest in questions that address the
role of attorneys. Prof Knake posits that the unprecedented number of
professional responsibility cases, when considered together, signal the
Court's significant prioritization of concerns related to the roles and
obligations of attorneys.
