Mission Statement for This Website:
- Share information of use to federal lawyers.
- Support various related projects.
I welcome suggestions for making this site more useful. I also maintain a different website, Netlawtools, for Internet projects not necessarily related to the federal government.
Ethics for Government Employees
- IEC Journal. I founded this website for the Interagency Ethics Counsel in 2004 and have moderated it since that time.
- Ethics Training Tips. This is the archive of a column I write for the IEC Journal website.
Supporting Criminal Investigators
The Art of the Referral. This article, co-authored with Kelly Sisario (auditor) and Bruce Sackman (investigator), advises criminal investigators on the best ways to present cases to prosecutors. Originally published in The Journal of Public Inquiry, this article has been used as training material at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
Presentations for Investigators
- Risky Business. Entertaining overview of ways investigators can get in trouble.
- Inspector General Subpoenas. Covers legal and practical aspects of Inspector General subpoenas.
Articles on Internet Use by Government Lawyers
- IEC Journal: A New Way for Government Lawyers to Share Information. Originally published in The Public Lawyer (ABA GPLSD) this article uses the IEC Journal website to illustrate how government lawyers can use blogs.
- Blogs as a Disruptive Technology. Originally published in Law Practice (ABA LPMS), this article explains why blogs are superior to conventional websites in some ways.
