Dispute Resolution Advancement Award Lecture and Presentation Ceremony
At the award ceremony, Professor Moffitt will discuss the award-winning research reported in his Chicago Law Review article, “Settlement Malpractice.” The article spotlights a major issue of professional accountability in settlement malpractice cases that end up in court. Today’s legal malpractice system operates on an outdated view of lawyers as litigators, Professor Moffitt asserts. In this age of settlement, the malpractice system needs a reframing to recognize the important role that lawyers play in settlement negotiations, and to protect clients who rely on their lawyers’ settlement expertise.
