Blog Co-Edited by Ethics Counsel and Adjunct Professor Michael Frisch Named to ABA Journal's Inaugural "Blawg 100 Hall of Fame"
November 29, 2012 —
“Legal Profession Blog,” co-edited by Georgetown University Law Center Ethics Counsel and Adjunct Professor Michael S. Frisch, has been named to the ABA Journal’s inaugural “Blawg 100 Hall of Fame.”
The blog was founded in 2006 as part of the Law Professors Blog network. On the blog, Frisch has focused his efforts on giving the public access to information concerning the regulation of the legal profession. He seeks to bring to light the operation of the state bar disciplinary processes and the sanctions imposed for attorney misconduct.
The ABA Journal says of the blog, “The posts here have us wondering, ‘What were they thinking?’ If a lawyer strays from ethical boundaries, the professors who blog here are quick to pick up on the trail of any discipline with to-the-point, snark-free dispatches.”
Frisch was previously senior assistant bar counsel to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. He was in private practice from 1978 to 1984 and assistant federal public defender for Maryland from 1975 to 1978. Frisch worked as a research assistant for the Senate Watergate Committee in 1973 and 1974.
