I recently noted the shuttering of CrossingtheBar.com, a legal-ethics site devoted to multijurisdictional practice, so I was glad to learn of a new site devoted to legal ethics, judicial ethics and bar admission issues, sunEthics.com.
The site is written and maintained by Timothy P. Chinaris, assistant dean of information resources and associate professor of law at Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Va. Its name comes from its focus on legal ethics in Florida, and that focus derives from Chinaris’ tenure as ethics director of the Florida Bar from 1989 to 1997 and later as associate dean for information resources and technology at Florida Coastal School of Law.
While the site features Florida, it does not ignore the rest of the country. Included among its collection of ethics-related links are the rules governing lawyer discipline procedure for every U.S. state. The site allows you to browse resources by state and has a subject index of cases and news stories.
