The menu included steak, baked potato, green bean bundles, strawberry shortcake and tea. And Chef Shute agreed.“The Wiregrass RC&D luncheon was prepared by our first, second and third year students and I could not have been more please,” Shute said. “They planned a ‘from scratch’ luncheon of steak, baked potato, bacon-wrapped bean bundles, rolls, strawberry shortcake and tea. This was an opportunity for the students to have a real-world experience. They worked really hard to make the luncheon a good dining experience for our guests.”Shute said the luncheon was good experience for her students in that they not only prepared the food but served their guests.

But, the students, laughingly, said it was back to the kitchen for them. There were dishes to wash, counters to clean and floors to sweep.Ronald W.

Board to meet November 30

first_imgBoard to meet November 30 November 15, 2001 Regular News A discussion on multidisciplinary and multijurisdictional practices, the annual audit report of Bar finances, and the last of this year’s two-year cycle procedural rule amendments will be among the items addressed by the Bar Board of Governors at its November 30 meeting. Governors will also take up again an appeal of an ethics opinion on advance funding, make a variety of appointments, and hear a report from the Family Law Section on its activities. The board will be having one of its periodic out-of-state meetings, this time in Atlanta. More than 900 Florida Bar members practice in the greater Atlanta area, and a reception, sponsopred by the Out-of-State Practioners Division, is planned to give those lawyers a chance to meet with board members. State Bar of Georgia President Jimmy Franklin and members of that bar’s Executive Committee will be attending the meeting, and a panel discussion is planned with members of both groups on the multidisciplinary and multijurisdictional practice issues. The Florida Bar has been a leader in the effort to block the establishment or growth of MDPs, while the Georgia bar is considering what position to take on that issue. The Florida Bar is studying the MJP issue, which is concerned about when it is proper for out-of-state attorneys to handle legal issues and related topics, including disciplinary questions. The Criminal Procedure Rules, Workers’ Compensation Rules, and Code and Rules of Evidence committees will present their two-year cycle rule amendments to the board for its review. That will complete the initial year of the new biennial rule cycle process, which has the procedural rules committees presenting amendments every other year, instead of the previous four-year cycle, and half of the committees presenting their changes in any given year. The Audit Committee will present the findings of the Bar’s outside auditors on the fiscal 2000-01 year operations, along with any recommendations from the auditors. That fiscal year ended June 30. The board will revisit Proposed Advisory Opinion 00-3 from the Professional Ethics Committee, which addresses advance funding companies. Those companies offer to loan money to personal injury clients secured only by expected winnings. The PAO 00-3 holds it is ethical for attorneys to tell clients about advance funding companies and, if the client gives written consent after consultation, to share confidential information with a funding company. An early version of the opinion also held that lawyers could issue letters of protection to the funding company, but the final version omitted that. It did say a lawyer could honor such a letter executed by a client. Some board members, at their October meeting, expressed reservations about the ethics of advance funding companies and the interest rates charged. Others said while some companies might be unsavory, it was not the lawyers’ duty to prevent clients from entering into such agreements. The board tabled the issue so members could review earlier drafts of PAO 00-3. Family Law Section Chair Norman Levin is scheduled to present the section’s annual report to the board. He is also expected to meet with the Disciplinary Procedure Committee over a planned revision to Rule 4-1.8(i), which prohibits an attorney from obtaining an interest in the client’s property which is subject to the cause of action. The DPC is considering an amendment to clarify that lawyers may not obtain a mortgage on client’s property, which would include property being divided in a divorce. The Family Law Section’s Executive Council has voted to oppose that, saying it would make it harder for some clients to obtain lawyers. The council also has gone on record in favor of allowing lawyers to get a percentage of property divided in a divorce as a way to improve access to the justice system. Appointments to be made include: • One lawyer from the federal Northern District of Florida for a four-year term on the 11th Circuit Judicial Conference. • One lawyer for a two-year term on the Greater Orlando Area Legal Services, Inc., Board of Directors. • Five lawyers, one from each district court of appeal jurisdiction, for two-year terms on the Florida Realtor-Attorney Joint Committee. • One lawyer for a three-year term on the Florida Rural Legal Services, Inc., Board of Directors.
