Professional / Malpractice

Lawsuits in the area of professional malpractice law stem from the medical professional, legal profession, financing, and banking sector, as well as other professional industries. As a licensed professional, not only is it important to have the right type and level of insurance coverage, but also to know your rights and be familiar with legal procedures and legal decisions that may impact your situation. The National Law Review covers a wide range of professional and malpractice-related news, stories, and litigation throughout the United States.

All of the latest news related to professional responsibility and malpractice legal issues can be read on the National Law Review. Visitors will find professional responsibility coverage information, ethical examinations which face attorneys, doctors, and other professionals, and different levels of liability under the state and federal court systems. News on issues that arise out of the American Bar Association (ABA), the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, and the Model Code of Judicial Conduct (attorney-client privilege), are a few of the topics which are analyzed by the legal experts who write for the National Law Review.

Attorneys’ obligations to their clients, the type of relationship (attorney-client, doctor-patient, etc.), confidential information, and the issues with cybersecurity today, are a few topics that the National Law Review covers for its visitors. Disciplinary enforcement of lawyers under Rule 11, the obligations an attorney has when using third-party or cloud-based servers, professional negligence, the work product doctrine, and other topics under the malpractice and professional liability area of law are covered in-depth for visitors.

Topics that include professional responsibility and malpractice issues in other professional fields like accounting and the medical field are also covered in the National Law Review. Informed consent, patient safety, and confidentiality of medical records, and HIPPA compliance, are some of the topics which are included under the medical malpractice section on the National Law Review.
