Procedure for Subpoenaing Michigan-Based Documents and Inspections for Matters Pending Outside Michigan

If a party to out-of-state litigation needs to subpoena a Michigan resident or company to be deposed or produce documents, the out-of-state litigant can follow the rules set forth in Michigan’s Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (MCL 600.2201 et seq), which was recently adopted in Michigan. If the out-of-state litigation was filed on or after April 1, 2013, here’s how a party can obtain discovery from a Michigan resident or company related to the out-of-state litigation:

Words Lawyers Shouldn't Be Using And/Or Relying On

Originally published at State Bar of Michigan Blog, check out the full article there!

In the ABA Journal, the incomparable Bryan Garner has an indispensable list of words and phrases that lawyers should not use: herein, deem, know all men by these presents, provided that, pursuant to, said, and same.  And "and/or."  The only one that I am occasionally guilty of is "and/or" which in the odd circumstance just seems to me to be more efficient than ", or both."  Garner musters some pretty persuasive authority against "and/or" --

American and British courts have held that and/or is not part of the English language. The Illinois Appellate Court called it a "freakish fad" and an "accuracy-destroying symbol." The New Mexico Supreme Court declared it a "meaningless symbol." The Wisconsin Supreme Court denounced it as "that befuddling, nameless thing, that Janus-faced verbal monstrosity." More recently, the Supreme Court of Kentucky called it a "much-condemned conjunctive-disjunctive crutch of sloppy thinkers."

Plunge in Law School Apps = Lower LSAT Scores?

Read the original article at the State Bar of Michigan Blog:

University of St. Thomas law professor Jerry Organ writes at The Legal Whiteboard on the effect of the ongoing decline in law school enrollment on the LSAT of the law student classes.  He reports that the entering first-year class average LSAT profile fell roughly two points between 2010 and 2013, and another point for the latest entering class. Although the declines are uneven, they appear throughout the rankings. Five schools each in the top 50 and 51-100 had a 3 point decline in their median LSAT; three schools ranked 100-144 saw a three point decline; and two of the unranked schools had declines of 5 and 6 points. Organ concludes that in the face of the ongoing application decline, many schools are in a "pick your poison" bind:

Statute of Frauds

The Statute of Frauds can be enforceable in certain contracts.  The agreement must be in writing and must be signed by both the parties in a contract.

When a contract is writing, it is easy to prove what the parties agreed to and will act as evidence to show the agreed upon terms. Other forms of evidences can be invoices, emails, and other scribbles that are signed by a party.

SEO and Video Legal Marketing

Louis XVI, July 1789, upon hearing of the fall of the Bastille, noted, "It is a big revolt," to which Duke La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt immediately responded, "No, Sir, it is a big revolution."

The legal profession has been slow to embrace the revolution that is Internet marketing. Even today, solos and small law firms are spending big dollars on outdated phone book and paper ads. Luckily, we no longer have to depend on annual print publications to direct our marketing efforts. Stacey Gaswirth, of the PR Firm The Shelton Group, has this advice for more traditional businesses: "When establishing a public relations strategy, not only should you consider a traditional media relations program, but also integrating multiple social media channels, as additional channels help deliver messages to your target audience. Some form of social media - be it YouTube videos, blogs, tweets or status updates - have become a part of everyday life for most of us with three out of four people using some form of social media on daily basis. This growing form of communication can no longer be ignored. It's not a trend, it's the norm."

"Practicing" Happiness

Originally published at Atticus Online

There's been a dramatic shift in how psychologists view happiness. Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard and apply ourselves, success will follow. And once we are successful, we'll be happy. Apparently we've had this all wrong. Harvard researcher Shawn Achor who based his new book, The Happiness Advantage, on the findings of over 200 scientific studies, says happiness is the fuel for success - not the result

5 Ways to Get Inside a Conference on a Budget

From Above The Law 11/11/3013 Article
Above the Law--Conferencing on a Budget

"Legal and industry conferences can provide great educational and networking opportunities for solo and small firm lawyers; particularly those just starting out. Sure, there are some conferences that are a complete waste of time, but In some fields, simply doing face time at conferences year after year is critical to keep business flowing. And in other practices, conferences may offer high-level substantive training on new legal developments.

Of course, back in law school, you could take advantage of your student i.d. card to access almost any conference you wanted to attend. And if you ever worked for a firm, your employer willingly footed the bill for conference attendance. But now, as a solo or small firm lawyer, conferences are on your dime, and as many solos quickly learn, conferences can take a toll on your wallet."

Law Firm Marketing: Asking for Business?

"I've lectured thousands of attorneys over the years on the subject of marketing, and almost without exception they tell me, "I don't want to sound desperate or too aggressive when I'm marketing. I don't want to sound like I'm soliciting business."

Fortunately, they don't have to. The key to developing this small but powerful rainmaking habit lies in the ability to ask the question in a way that doesn't come across as aggressive. The language you use makes all the difference, not only in your comfort level but also in how the message is received."
