Toward a New Ethical Standard Regulating the Private Practice of Former Government Lawyers
This comment advocates the elimination of the "appearance of impropriety" as a legal and ethical standard governing the disqualification of former government lawyers and urges the ABA to adopt Rule LIP of the proposed Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Model Rule 1.11, Successive Government and Private Employment, provides a comprehensible, precise ethical rule regulating the post-government practice of lawyers in conformity with federal statute and regulation.
