Legal Ethics Project

To answer the questions you must use the Model Rules and in addition, you may also use the class material, including modules, a legal dictionary, case law, and the internet. You must cite to at least one case or bar opinion (any jurisdiction) in answering one of the questions. Only one case/opinion is required for this entire project but additional cases/opinions may be added. You will use a memorandum format and your answers should be ordered to correspond to the questions. Hypothetical: Sam Knowitall is an attorney who loves the internet. Sam often looks for potential clients while he is surfing. Sam decided to create a website. He asked his paralegal for help. They put lots of legal information on his site including numerous articles and other legal information about Sam's specialty which is personal injury law. They also added to the website a two-way feature. This two-way feature allowed them to receive all types of information from visitors. They were excited to communicate with visitors. The website also has links to the court's website where forms to file lawsuits can be downloaded. One day, a visitor goes onto Sam’s website. The visitor has been recently injured in a car accident and is looking for an attorney to sue the other driver. The visitor reads all the information on Sam’s website and is so impressed, he sends Sam the facts about his case but never receives a response. When he doesn't hear from him, he downloads court forms and files his own lawsuit which he loses. He reports Sam to the state bar association for violating ethical rules. Assignment: Thoroughly answer the following questions (you must provide a legal analyze in all your answers to receive full points): In the legal field, what is the definition of a client? Is the visitor a client of Sam’s law firm? If you answered yes, explain how he became a client. If you answered no, explain how the visitor could have become a client? No matter how you answered question #2, should the firm shut down the website and if you answer yes or no, please explain.
