The Louisiana Rules of Professional Conduct, as annotated by Prof. Dane S. Ciolino of the Loyola University College of law, is now an iPhone app. Thanks to the creative design and expert coding done by New Orleans lawyer Matt Miller, the app is now available for download at Apple’s iTunes App Store for the reasonable cost of $0.00—it’s free. For more information on the app, visit iTunes by clicking here: Louisiana Legal Ethics iPhone App.
In short, the iPhone app contains an e-book with (1) the full text of each of the current Louisiana Rules of Professional Conduct, (2) “background” information regarding the adoption of each rule by the Louisiana Supreme Court, (3) related ABA resources, including the comments to the corresponding ABA model rule, and (4) annotations discussing Louisiana case law and administrative decisions relevant to each rule. This app is the successor to Louisiana Professional Responsibility Law and Practice, a book published by the Louisiana State Bar Association in three editions from 2001 through 2007. The iPhone app and the Louisiana Legal Ethics Website make this information available to the public and Louisiana lawyers at no charge.
